Biodiversity – Seminar

What is the pathway to realising a future where biodiversity and development truly coexist in our city?

Chaired by Brendan Smith (Galway National Park City), we will tease out the topic of how and why ecological issues are overlooked or not equally considered when it comes to urban development. We ask, can this change and how? This discussion will be grounded in the ecologically diverse site on Kyrl’s Quay while relating to the global climate crisis from an intersectional perspective. The panelists are Kaethe Burt O'Dea (BíUrban, Dublin) and Shane Clarke (Nano Nagle Place, Cork) with more to be announced.

This is a seated, outdoor, socially-distanced event, with limited capacity. Maximum 6 tickets per purchase/per seating pod. If you wish to sit in a pod please book under the same name. This event is open to people of all ages provided children are accompanied by an adult. This is an alcohol free event. If you have specific access requirements and would like to attend this seminar, please get in touch before the event. Please note that photographs and film footage will be taken during the event, please advise if you do not wish to be included in any photography. Please bring protective face coverings, we advise audience members to wear a mask until seated. The seminar takes place outdoors. We advise ticket-holders to wear appropriate clothing for the outdoors. As Kyrl's Quay is an industrial site of significance we have retained as much of the original surfaces as possible.

From the grassroots, community driven initiatives to high level spatial planning this conversation teases out the cross overs and significance of varying approaches.

We will discuss the synergies of each in the context of how a city develops and the space that is required to protect and nurture these systems developing in parallel.
