Visioning Day Graphic

How do YOU imagine a healthy, sustainable and resilient future for Galway city?

It is time for you to have your say!

Come along to ‘Galway Visioning Day’ at Scoil Chroí Íosa, Newcastle Road anytime between 11am – 4:15pm on Saturday 6th April.

The aim of ‘Galway Visioning Day’ is to produce an action plan for a better Galway by 2030. The day will be an open, free event. Refreshments and live entertainment will be provided.

Everyone is invited to attend for as long as they wish to share their ideas at tables covering the topics such as energy; food and water; infrastructure; community and education; economics; and going beyond Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Other ideas and topics are also welcome.

Ideas generated at this event will inform a plan called an Energy Descent Action Plan (EDAP) for Galway. Similar plans have been produced for Kinsale, Co. Cork, Totnes in England and many other places around the world. This plan will be available on our website and copies will be printed for distribution to local public libraries and other appropriate places.

We believe that everyone has a role in shaping an exciting and inspiring future for Galway and welcome both big and small ideas. So why not take this opportunity to express the change you want to see for the future?

  1. Excellent idea. I am looking forward to this event as there is a need to place before the public an alternative view to that which soley promotes growth of economies. We need to seriously look at ways in which communities can reduce their carbon footprint and get away from market growth alone as a policy.
