CAT is an educational charity dedicated to researching and communicating positive solutions for environmental change.
CAT’s visitor centre demonstrates practical solutions for sustainability. It covers all aspects of green living: environmental building, eco-sanitation, woodland management, renewable energy, energy efficiency and organic growing.
A spectacular water-balanced railway delivers visitors to the CAT site, providing the first stop for those interested in discovering sustainable technologies via exciting and interactive hands-on displays. These are continually updated to reflect the changes and needs of a society increasingly aware of the need to adopt sustainable technologies and lifestyles. In the summer months there are guided tours, or individual audio-tours are available.
The courses taught at CAT’s Graduate School of the Environment are respected across the world, providing a big-picture, integrated approach to sustainability and the knowledge, skills, inspiration and networks to make a real difference in your chosen field. A series of short courses runs alongside the Graduate School.
CAT also provides information resources, an online shop, venue hire and group visits for schools. The visitor centre includes a shop, café and accommodation.
