Centre of learning;News in brief

5th March 1999 at 00:00
In contrast to the Millennium Dome at Greenwich, little has been heard of the Earth Centre, Britain's millennium contribution to sustainable development, which will cost pound;100 million and is almost as ambitious. Built near Doncaster in a 400-acre park, it encompasses 26 acres of exhibitions on the theme of sustainable development with a heavy emphasis on education for all ages. Apart from the exhibitions, there will be theatres, gardens, a Japanese sensory trail, play areas and restaurant facilities. The first phase will open on April 2.

The Earth Centre, Kilner's Bridge, Doncaster Road, Denaby Main, South Yorkshire DN12 4DY. Tel: 01709 512000. Booking hotline: 01709 513933. Stand 25
