A youth hostel could soon be opening at the Eden Project. Plans for the 58 room hostel at the tourist attraction have been submitted to Cornwall Council. It'd be used by school groups on educational trips to the Eden Project.
Visitor numbers to the Eden Project dropped by almost 10% in the past year. Despite the decrease, it remains the most popular attraction in the region. New figures show that just over 850,000 people visited during 2013.
The Eden Project has reported a loss of more than six million pounds.
The loss covered the financial year ending in March 2013. The previous year the tourist attraction near St Austell made a small profit of a hundred and thirty six thousand pounds.
It said it hoped for better results in the coming year due to job losses and the sale of surplus land.
The Eden Project's ice rink has opened in St Austell. Dozens of young people battling cancer, who've been treated at the Royal Cornwall Hospital's oncology department officially opened the rink last night.
Tim Smit is from the Eden Project and says he loves all the twinkly christmas lights.
The Eden Project has announced more job losses.
In January the attraction which opened in 2001, said it had to make savings worth £2million and made 53 staff redundant.
Now it's announced that a further fifteen posts will have to be lost.
At the moment the project employs just under 400 people.
Experts from around the world will spend the next three days at the Eden Project in Cornwall to discuss what should happen when a mine closes. Eden itself was built in a former china clay quarry.
The delegates will talk about how minimise the environmental and social impact of mine closure. Eden is set within the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site and this is the first the conference has come to Europe.

Tim “Livewire” Shieff and Pip “Piptrix” Andersen spent two days at Eden performing parkour tricks in the project’s Rainforest and Mediterranean Biomes as well as taking to the colourful outdoor landscape.
The film focuses on the new Rainforest Aerial Walkway and ends on a spectacular shot of the Tim and Pip performing backflips and somersaults on the roof of the giant Rainforest Biome.

The Eden Project is to allow dogs into its outdoor gardens every day, starting Saturday June 15.
Following a successful pilot weekend last month (May), the Eden Project has decided to open its doors to dogs every day. Before that, only registered assistance dogs have been allowed in but due to popular demand Eden has decided to relax the rules.
A walkway is being constructed at the Eden Project near St Austell so that visitors can get a bird's eye view of some of the many plants on show. It's being built in the rainforest biome and means people will almost be able to reach the tops of the tallest trees.
Restrictions on people taking their dogs to the Eden Project have been lifted this weekend for the first time. Until now, only registered assistance pets have been permitted. But animals won't be allowed in any building apart from through the Visitor Centre.
Eden's Operations Director Ian Williams said: "Lots of visitors have asked us if we would consider letting dogs in. We will see how Dog Weekend at Eden goes and how well it is received by dog owners and general visitors and will then make a call on whether we have more dog days in future."
