Derbyshire Eco Centre is the county hub for sustainability learning. It is at the heart of our drive to combat climate change. The Eco Centre offers a high quality, enjoyable and supportive environment in which to learn the skills we need to enjoy living sustainably and lead lower carbon lifestyles.

The Eco Centre encourages learning that brings together the interests of people, places and prosperity. It is the first centre of its kind in the country.
