Rory O'Connor, RIP

RoryOconnorIt is with the deepest regret that we announce the passing of our great friend Rory O'Connor.

As a Founding Member of the Galway 2040 initiative Rory was a powerhouse of visioning, always inspiring us to be leaders rather than followers. His last blog asked us, “What is YOUR vision for Galway?

Infrastructure and Environment Symposium – Fri Sep 27th

“Creating a Sustainable Infrastructure in Harmony with our Rich Environment”

Galway2040 held a very successful symposium on Infrastructure and Environment in September at NUI Galway.

The challenge of creating and managing a sustainable infrastructure to meet the needs of Galway in 2040 is of great significance. The seminar discussed many aspects associated with the growth of a city in the 21st century.

We have a chairman's summary, a gallery of photos, and are working on video highlights to be available soon.

Galway 2040 – A Generation From Today

Galway 2040 is a community initiative to create a vision for the future of Galway city and county.

All of us can imagine what we'd like to see in the future, and we want to inspire you to think about what might be possible in Galway. What do you want to preserve? What would you change? What needs to be created, invented? Think of possibilities, not obstacles.

Who’s involved?

Everyone is welcome to participate. We've organised into pillars with a Cathaoirleach and members to engage with the community, gathering inputs, ideas and reflections. The pillars have backgrounders to spark debate and discussion about possibilities for the future. This is the starting point for creating a vision and plan.

You can help!

2040 is our future. It's for and by the citizens of Galway, city and county. We are asking how we'd like our city, county and region to be in a generation from now.

Read our pillar backgrounders, come to our symposium on Friday September 27th, follow us on Twitter and “like” us on Facebook so you are always up-to-date. Share this site with your friends and encourage them.

Soon we'll also have forums where you can contribute ideas and make comments.
