We are very excited to be hosting this amazing workshop, Circular Economy Academy Workshop in conjunction with Rediscovery Centre and The Environmental Protection Agency.
If you are interested in exploring new business opportunities around repair, reuse, lending and environmental innovation then come along to this free event at SOLAS.
The Circular Economy Academy provides business support services including advice for start-up, circular business planning, development, funding, diversification and training. The Academy also supports organisations to replicate the Rediscovery Centre’s successful paint, furniture, fashion and bicycle reuse initiatives.
The Circular Economy Academy is delivered in partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency through the Circular Economy Programme.
This event will start with an exploratory workshop discussing opportunities for community projects in the circular economy covering the Rediscovery Centre’s social enterprise journey, an introduction to design thinking, successful funding models and other support services available. The workshop will close with a Q&A and an opportunity to network with like-minded organisations.
The workshop will be followed by 30 minute one-to-one mentoring sessions for anyone with a specific circular economy project in mind (e.g. waste prevention, reuse, repair, lending, environmental innovation). These sessions will take place throughout the afternoon.
