Roscommon LEADER Partnership were very lucky to have Minister Joe O'Brien TD for Dublin Fingal to officially launch the Empowering Creative Circular Entrepreneurs and Climate Champions project in beautiful Castlecoote Village in Co Roscommon earlier this year.
This project brings circular economy principles to business start-ups, established businesses and social enterprises in the county and in the EU.
We also had a speech from our European Projects Officer Sharon to talk about the work we are doing with our partners across Europe to further enhance people skills and knowledge in multiple areas.
Some of the key objectives of this project are:
To understand the strengths and weaknesses of the creative industry through exploratory panels with a focus on circular economy for job potential and business impact.
Upskill the Vocational Education Training (VET) Community to train entrepreneurs how to use circular practices in their own businesses.
To build and maintain connections between entrepreneurs, educators and unemployed creatives by sharing opportunities, skills and training using an online platform.
Creating a workshop guide to allow entrepreneurs to implement circular models to help them promote their business to consumers and wider networks.
This is an Erasmus+ Funded Project
