Successful first Citizen/Youth consultation carried out in Ireland
The first Citizen/Youth consultation to be carried out in Ireland under the Sea for Society project took place last Saturday (18th May) in the Salthill Hotel - overlooking the waters of Galway Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

Some twenty participants took place in the consultation, which was led by Michelle Devaney of NUI Galway and John Joyce of AquaTT, ably assisted on the computer software by Olivia Daly of AquaTT who also managed the displays and paperwork for the event.

Over seventy ideas related to the six topics of Leisure & Tourism, Human Health, Transport, Energy, Marine Food and A Place to Live - with additional time being given to consider the last two topics since they are to be considered as national priority subjects.

Feedback from the participants on the organisation of the event was very positive, with many commenting that the 'Collective Intelligence' method employed was extremely enjoyable to use and a great way of identifying and discussing ideas from a group.

 

The second Citizen/Youth consultation in Ireland will take place this coming weekend on Saturday 25th May in Dublin at the Science Gallery attached to the famous Trinity College.
