ECOPRO Seminar in Ireland: "A Community Approach to Sustainable Work in the Circular Economy"

Green European Foundation hosted a seminar in Ireland on the 10th of June, as a part of the transnational ECOPRO project. The event was organised with the support of Green Foundation Ireland.

The theme of this seminar was "FULL CIRCLE: A Community Approach to Sustainable Work in the Circular Economy". With this focus, the seminar in Ireland aspired to reflect further on the current topics of our ECOPRO project

Therefore, some of the most relevant questions which were addressed during the event were:


  • What role do community groups, co-operatives and local enterprises have in the circular economy? 
  • Under what conditions can the circular economy help us accelerate the transition to a resilient and low carbon society?

This seminar was based on a participatory format, blending presentations with facilitated conversations. The list of speakers included Dr. Anne Snick (KU Leuven, Belgium) and Clare Downey (Community Reuse Network, Ireland).

TIME: Seminar was held between 14h00 and 16h30 on the 10th of June.

LOCATION: WeCreate Workspace, located in Cloughjordan Ecovillage in Tipperary, Ireland.
