You are invited to the launch of Strategic Pathways to Community-led Greening – the final report of the Mapping Green Dublin project on June 10th at 6pm. You can book a ticket through Eventbrite.
Mapping Green Dublin’s research responds to recent research by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Health Service Executive (HSE) that has highlighted the importance of green space and urban greening on health and wellbeing. Increased interaction with greenspace leads to more positive health outcomes but greening strategies must be fit-for-purpose. Simply put place matters! Our community strategy highlights how communities all across the country and beyond can take the tools we have created to develop projects and deliver real change in their own neighbourhoods.

Half Way to Falling is a collaborative and collective response to Common Ground’s The Just City – Counter Narrative Neighbourhood Residency Award 2020 – 2021 which was awarded to Kate O’ Shea in March 2020, when Ireland entered its first period of lockdown. In April 2020 Kate established an online reading group of international activists, community workers, artists and academics from eight cities around the world. This has evolved into The Just City Collective.
PLOTS is a project created by artist Seoidín O’Sullivan that invites you with Mapping Green Dublin to create a map of your current 2km run, walk or cycle route.
Your PLOTS Map will form an integral part of our Dublin 8 community atlas, building a picture of our valuable public green infrastructure across Dublin’s south west inner city. Let’s work together to make our city bike and pedestrian friendly and give everyone fair access to green space.
You can create your map in two ways:
Use My Map app on your phone and share.
Draw and photograph your map and share.
