Green-Schools Travel Conference – Ireland’s 2040 Vision
What is your vision for the future? How do you want your city or town to look in 2040? How do you want it to feel? How do you think you will travel and where will you live? These are the questions that we will be asking as part of the Green-Schools conferences which will focus on Ireland’s 2040 Vision. We are looking to the future with optimism and focusing on the myriad of opportunities available to us in 2020 which can help us solve the combined problems of climate, biodiversity, and equality.
Imagine an environment where children can play freely and walk to school independently. Imagine a town or city, free from cars, buzzing with the sounds of real human interactions. Imagine a future where climate action is a top priority, shared and contributed to by everyone, young and old. All these positive changes have the ability to enhance our health and improve our sense of well-being.
Join us online where we will discuss and inspire how together we can secure a positive vision for a 2040 Ireland.
