Project ECCO

The Rediscovery Centre has launched a new community-led climate action and resilience project with our partners EDI Longford, Roscommon Women’s Network and Tait House in Limerick. The project ‘Empowering Communities in Circular Opportunities (ECCO) will build capacity with communities in four locations across Ireland to start new reuse, repair and other circular economy projects.

Participants in the programme will be supported through the project through a 12 month flexible skills building programme involving access to workshops, one-to-one support, online content and information packs. These will be tailored to work around each participant’s schedule, interests, and strengths and will help them develop new skills, grow their future CV, and explore the opportunities of reuse and repair. Throughout the onboarding process (June – October), we will work closely with participants to develop an achievable programme that sets them up for long-term success. Where possible, transport and workspace costs will be covered to maximise participation in the programme.
