Sustainable 3D Printing Education Centre & Mobile Workshops

We are working towards creating a Sustainable 3D Printing & Plastic Recycling Centre and Mobile 3D Printing Studio.

Our goal is to provide educational sustainable 3D printing workshops throughout North Wales, and to provide a 3D printing centre for the benefit of the community and businesses. We also want to inspire a new generation of young makers to become active leaders in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM). With our Mobile 3D Printing Workshop we will be able to teach and provide services in Schools & Communities.

Using a range of free software, materials and plans, owning and operating your very own 3D Printer will not only be affordable, but good for helping to clean up local communities and the environment.

Build and customise your very own 3D Printer to take home with our 2 day course.

Gwynt y Môr Community Fund

We are working with the Gwynt y Môr Community Fund to run a programme of activities to get people back into employment, full or part time education, training and giving them the skills for life-long learning. We also provide website design services and training to provide skills to make a success of their businesses online - g2gcommunities.org/pop-up-people-case-study/gwynt-y-mor. The project will help to reduce unemployment and create future jobs as their business grow.

Gwynt y Môr Bodelwyddyn Castle Celebration

The Gwynt y Môr fund held a celebration event at Bodelwyddyn Castle. This was a great opportunity to get people together and talking about their projects and the difference it has made to their community - Photographs from the Day >

This relatively new organisation is at the cutting edge of training, upskilling and readying people for the jobs market. An accredited centre for Lego Innovation Electronics and Robotics (the only accredited community organisation in the UK) and a UK Space programme partner G2G has been given a £20,000 grant to engage people across the area of benefit in a training and employment programme. The GYM grant is helping to employ a part time project manager and two support tutors.

Royal Society of Arts – Dr William Lockitt

The RSA mission is to create the conditions for the enlightened thinking and collaborative action needed to address today's most pressing social challenges. They serve this mission by acting as a global hub, by enabling millions of people to access the most creative ideas, by nurturing networks of innovators, and through researching, testing and sharing practical interventions.

Dr Lockitt said ‘The mission of the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) is to enrich society through ideas and action’. ‘This fits in well with the aims and objectives of G2G Communities CIC as a not for profit, community focused organisation delivering to Schools, Libraries, local government organisations and those furthest away from employment in some of the highest areas of deprivation in Wales’.
