Mapping Green Dublin is an interdisciplinary research project that combined citizen science, community knowledge and experience, socially engaged arts practice and academia. Its research findings outline how communities can be provided with and use scientific data to develop local and strategic recommendations and projects and engage more equally with policymakers. Mapping Green Dublin partners, UCD Geography, Common Ground and artist Seoidín O’Sullivan focused its research on an area of Dublin that corresponds loosely with the postcode area of Dublin 8, an east-west area extending along the Liffey from the Liberties in the city centre to Inchicore. While the Dublin 8 neighbourhood was the immediate focus of the study, the methodologies adopted can be applied in any neighbourhood looking to develop alternative and inclusive approaches to urban greening.
