Cycle Sense, a social enterprise focused on the promotion of cycling as a sustainable form of transportation and conducting cycle safety training for schools and organisations, is looking to initiate upcycling and waste reduction projects in Skibbereen.
As the climate crisis rages on, we feel it is important to take actions locally here in Skibbereen to help combat the climate challenge head on. Projects that focus on upcycling and waste prevention are especially impactful, as they address our current system of unsustainable consumption. They can also have significant economic and environmental benefits for our local community, as they reduce the amount of waste produced and collected in Skibbereen and can provide jobs & training opportunities and access to affordable, environmentally-friendly goods for our friends and neighbours.
A meeting for potential stakeholders will take place in Skibbereen from 12.00 til 3.00pm on 3 December, 2019 at the Community & Family Resource Centre, North Street, Skibbereen, to discuss these opportunities.
We have partnered with the Rediscovery Centre, Ireland’s National Centre for the Circular Economy, to assist us in studying the feasibility and implementation of these projects. As part of this initial phase, we are conducting an information and exploration session with local stakeholders to look at opportunities, assess local needs and map out current & potential activities in Skibbereen.
