G2G Communities CIC is extremely pleased to have received £8560 toward the development of an exciting innovative technology project – Sustainable 3D Printing.
The funding will be used to buy 3D Printers, to develop a qualification network, plastics recycling and education. G2G Communities CIC supports people furthest away from employment, education or training and wanting to learn new skills and improve employability as well as developing confidence and motivation along the way.
Director Moira Lockitt said ‘We are extremely pleased that the Gwynt y Môr selection panel chose this project and will ensure the funding is used to highlight new employment opportunities in emerging industries such as 3D printing and recycling’. ‘We have issued a survey to ensure the developments being undertaken are driven by the local community and for the benefit of the local community’. ‘During the project we hope to encourage groups, individuals and Schools to develop their own 3D printing hubs and contribute to the recycling of plastics to ensure environmental sustainability’.
