Galway - Reimagining the Irish City will focus attention on the radical reform of our current planning, design and delivery systems urgently required to enable Irish cities and towns to survive and prosper in the coming decades. Early Bird tickets are available until Friday, 31 March.
Galway is a city which is looking to remodel itself for the emerging new age and is starting on the long-term conversations required to facilitate a significant transformation using work carried out by the Irish Cities group as jumping off point. The conference will conclude with a ‘Galway Charter’ based on the urban design principles articulated in the pioneer ‘Freiburg Charter’ and to consider how they can be updated for application in an Irish context, using the Irish Cities Galway 2070 Plan, prepared by the Irish Cities Group as a reference for the context of the review.
Come join us for what will be an amazing event with local and national speakers as well as European exemplars including Wulf Daseking, Former Chief Planning Officer for the City of Freiburg.
Note, there will be 6 CPD points available for each day attended.
