Bringing together a wide variety of speakers and citizens, the purpose of the morning is to address the reasons why we are not successfully addressing our housing needs and to propose solutions to the challenge.

The Dublin Democratic Planning Alliance is a voluntary community of +75 civic groups calling for a return to planning and housing policies that put the citizen at their centre.
Acting as a voice for the shared problems of communities with regard to housing, building and planning, we share our knowledge of planning policy with a wider audience, in the search for understanding and fact-based solutions.
We believe in the principle of Subsidiarity, a core value of the European Union.
