we've BEEN TALKING...

...but maybe we need to talk more? Or perhaps we should go for a walk, learn what it is primary care centres actually do or empower our children to ask for help. Let's talk mental health. How we access it, how we maintain it and how our local area can support us all in living a happy, healthy and content life in the heart of Dublin city.

Let's talk community and how the decisions of today can shape tomorrow. Joining us for a chat are the following speakers:

It all started when...

We tried to imagine Dublin in 15 years time. Would the housing crisis be a distant memory? Would rents require you to surrender your passport and sign over your first born to get a roof over your head? Will we have done away with private car ownership because driverless cars had made paying motor tax and insurance a pointless exercise? Will we be living in a leafier, quieter and safer city?

Let's talk community and how the decisions of today can shape tomorrow. Joining us for a chat are the following speakers:
