Our centre will be headquartered in the Boyne Valley. It is envisaged that there will be a need for physical spaces for administration, teaching, hosting events and meetings. Recent developments in virtual meeting technology can be utilised to reach stakeholders locally, nationally and internationally. It is also envisaged that much of the activities and learning will take place ‘in the field’, locally and nationally. The location feasibility study will assess these needs in detail and make recommendations how to optimise spaces, facilitates and locations. In the first years there is a definite need for an administrative space within the Boyne Valley and we will need to reach out to local stakeholders to find spaces in which to host events. We will need to work closely with our County Councils throughout our early years to identify and source possible locations and optimise resources available.
