There are unique moments , inspired by history, which offer possibilities and hope for radical transformation in the present and future. 2016 could be one such opportunity.
It will be 100 years since the Easter Rising and the proclamation of the Irish Republic. It is also likely to be the year of the next General Election. We face major challenges and questions about what type of future Ireland is going to have? What values should shape Irish society in the coming decades?
Equality, environmental sustainability, participation, accountability and solidarity in our society are core values for CoF. Building on the commitment to these core values, Galway City Community Forum is delighted to welcome claiming our Fut
ure back to Galway for an open meeting in to discuss the idea of developing a ‘Declaration for a New Republic’. The development of this will take place between now and 2016 and will involve as many people as possible. This process will include public meetings, on-line interaction, a large national assembly in late 2014, and participative action, amongst other aspects.
We look forward to your involvement in this and to building an initiative that can serve change for equality, environmental sustainability, participation, accountability and solidarity in our society.
