Talking Towns is a lunchtime seminar series organised by UCD Centre for Irish Towns and UCD Earth Institute. The series aims to spark conversations about the challenges facing Irish towns, the opportunities they offer, and the role of research and policy in bringing about the revitalisation of towns in Ireland.
Starting in October 2021 the series will run on the first Thursday of the month at lunchtime. The series will feature speakers from academia, policymaking and civil society. Each seminar will address a specific topic affecting Irish towns and will have three speakers, each presenting for ten minutes each with plenty of time for discussion afterwards.
