The BLUEPRINT to a Circular Economy

The BLUEPRINT to a Circular Economy Project has been created to introduce Kent & Medway job seekers to the Circular Economy (The Greener Economy).
Through this free training, you will be introduced to the benefits and opportunities that are available in employed work and self-employed enterprises as we transition from our current economy into a circular economy.
