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