Brief Description about the Workshop:

The workshop had a number of key elements . The objective was to introduce the local business community to the possibilities of the Green and Circular agendas. Specifically the workshop featured presentations, talks and discussions on the supports and possibilities for companies beginning their ‘green journey’. The supports available in terms of grant availability and expert support that can be made available in terms of mentoring and financial support. The possibilities available to rural communities in the whole area of the circular economy were described and explored in great detail. The animation produced as part of the Circular.rur project was shown to great interest. This animation will be used to spur rural communities to explore the possibilities of the circular economy.

These discussions were then followed by a number of presentations from local businesses who have benefitted from grants and expertise being offered by the Local Enterprise Office.
