Our priority is to empower citizens to take action towards a sustainable, circular Ireland.
The Irish public are keenly aware of the need for a green transition and are eager to contribute. We can help them by providing the tools, resources and in-person support for citizens to take their own projects and ideas forward.
local clean ups
We partner with local groups and Tidy Towns to help with rubbish clean-ups and end these events with informative talks on how to manage waste better.
The Bioeconomy Map is an interactive exhibit packed with plenty of advice on how people can be more sustainable and circular in their daily lives.
