Creative Recycling Workshop

🕓 45 mins - 2 hours 🪙 From €200 🏠 Client venue/Online


Workshop Description

At this workshop for Community Groups, Libraries and Family Resource centers, we will use reuse materials in a creative and inventive way (all materials are clean) to make something new. Participants will have the opportunity to learn the value of the materials around them, explore recycling and circular economy principles and have the opportunity to give new life to resources rather than sending them to landfill or littering on the street! It's a perfect way to learn about recycling and sustainability especially in areas that suffer from litter and dumping. Learning Outcomes: • Learn about the principles of recycling and composting. • Explore reuse materials to invent something new. • Understand circularity and the value of materials. At our workshops, we offer a range of duration and delivery options to suit your needs. Whether you prefer in-person sessions or online workshops, each option offers unique advantages. For instance, a 45-minute online workshop provides a solid foundation, covering the basics and principles effectively. However, opting for a longer, 1.5 and 2-hour workshop enables deeper learning and allows us to accomplish more together. Choosing the extended option not only enriches your learning experience but also ensures we can delve into more advanced topics and incorporate more interactive activities, resulting in greater value. So, for a more comprehensive and in-depth session, we encourage you to consider the longer duration options. Prices: • €200 for a 45 mins Online Workshop • €270 for a 1 hr In-person Workshop including materials • €350 for a 1 hr 30 mins In-person Workshop including materials • €400 for a 2 hour In-person Workshop including materials In-person capacity: We can facilitate a group of maximum of 15 participants per workshop but recommend smaller groups for increased interactivity and more one-on-one time. Sustainable Development Links: SDG 3 (Good Health and Well-being), SDG 10 (Reduced Inequalities), SDG 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities), SDG 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production), SDG 13 (Climate Action), SDG 14 (Life Below Water), SDG 15 (Life on Land).
