Community Platform - A National Conference - 'Shaping Our Future'

A National Conference - 'Shaping Our Future'

A National Conference - ‘Shaping Our Future –developing a vision for an inclusive, equal and sustainable Ireland’ took place on Friday June 19th

The event, which was a collaboration between the Community Platform and Is Féidir Linn* aimed to create an opportunity for people to participate in setting a vision for a new sustainable Irish society, one that values and aspires to equality, inclusion and the building of social solidarity.

  • The key note speaker was Professor Richard Wilkinson, co-author of the ground breaking book –The Spirit Level.
    Richard's input can be accessed here.
    Questions for Richard can be accessed here.

  • Dr Mary Murphy presented a manifesto outlining a vision for an inclusive, equal and sustainable Ireland.
    Mary's input can be accessed here.

  • Jack O'Connor of SIPTU responded to the manifesto.
    Jack's input can be accessed here.

Members of the organising group are working to widen the consensus around the vision document and to develop alliances between community organisations, trade unions, politicians, Faith leaders and other focused interests necessary to advance equality, inclusion and social justice for all.

There has been a very positive response to both the draft manifesto and the invitation to join us in advancing the vision and goals. We are very keen to build on the momentum and would welcome an opportunity to present and debate the manifesto with interested groups.

We would welcome an opportunity to speak at upcoming events which organisations may be planning or indeed we would be very happy to liaise with organisations who may be interested in organising a seminar at a local or regional level.

Please contact Anne Costello if you wish to discuss the possibilities.
