SIRCLe – Social Innovation for Resilient Communities

The SIRCle project is conceived as an innovative, open source curriculum that integrates active citizenship training materials and tools with those of social and holistic entrepreneurship. It responds to the needs of adults, particularly those living in more disadvantaged areas, who wish to combine their care for the environment with the ability to establish an adequate source of livelihood.
