Cork Healthy Cities is deligthed to announce a series of seminars that we are partnering with SHEP Earth Aware, Green Spaces for Health, Cork Chamber, Cork Environmental Forum and the Environmental Research Institute on.

This whole series will concentrate on opening up a discussion on how we might green Cork. Looking at what this means from many different perspectives, we will be inviting expert practitioners in this field from both Ireland and abroad to share their thoughts, ideas and experiences with us and we will be providing ample opportunity for you to engage and discuss your responses in the sessions. In this time of the creation of a new Cork City Development Plan 2022 to 2028 and influenced by our experiences as a city during the recent lockdown we consider now an opportune time to consider just what kind of a city we want to live in for the future.
