Empowering Communities in Circular Opportunities (ECCO)

A community skill building initiative on repair, reuse and circular living.

The project is funded by the Department of Communications, Climate Action and the Environment and is part of the Community Climate Action Fund and is being ran by four regional partners,namely, The EDI Centre in Longford, Roscommon Women’s Network, Tait House Community Enterprises in Limerick and the Rediscovery Centre in Dublin.

It provides an opportunity for individuals and community projects to engage in sustainable training to develop solutions to address climate action and face the many challenges in the transition to Circular Enterprise. This can be achieved through education & training, and learning by doing.
