The Edge Project

£50 million, four competitors and only one winner

The National Lottery is having a compertion where the public vote for the corse that they feel best deserved the money to go ahead to build their project. The fours projects taking part are:

Sustrans’ Connect2
Connect2 is a UK-wide project that aims to improve local travel in 79 communities by creating new walking and cycling routes for those everyday journeys.

The Eden Project/ The Edge
The Edge represents the next evolution of the Eden Project in Cornwall, where communities will be able to share the ideas they have for improving their lives and surroundings.

Sherwood: the Living Legend
Sherwood: The Living Legend will protect the fragile ecology of one of the world’s most famous forests so it can be enjoyed by future generations.

Black Country Urban Park
Not only will our project entice visitors to discover the Black Country, but more than 800,000 people will live within walking distance of a much needed attractive, safe environment.


The Eden Project have come to Plymouth Uni and asked Chris Speed and Mike Phillips to get some student involved with help with the promotion. They both decided to ask Aqeel to be teamleader, good choice I must say. Aqeel then had to pick his team from the second year Idat group, and you have guessed it Aqeel decided to pick me as he likes the ideas i come up with and my skills with flash. He says I will mainly be working with Simon, as he is really good at animation and action script.

I have been asked to start thinking about story boards of how the flash site will look, but its all still a bit confusing to tll what we actually have to do. Next Firday we are meeting up with Mike to talk things through. This is very exciting, I am really up for this project!!!!

Just a BIG thank you to Aqeel for picking me! Now lets make The Edge with this money!!!!
