Have you no homes to go to?

The Limerick Spring Festival of Politics and Ideas is holding a public workshop with the citizens of Limerick in Ormston House on the issue of housing in Ireland.

Do you think housing is a right? Have your say at the Limerick Spring’s housing workshop, where citizens will tackle various issues surrounding the housing crisis. An afternoon of invention, debate and innovation – this workshop prolifically touches on housing issues that are close to our heart.

An array of topics are on the table, including, the economics of housing, the future of housing and demographics, exploring alternatives and also asking if housing is a human right? In groups, individuals will explore the pros and cons of owning your own home. Some voices speaking of future dreams and others preaching from past experiences.

Get your voice heard and share your vision for the housing crisis in Ireland. Table-side conversations lead to revolutionary ideas.

This is a free event but requires booking:

About the Limerick Spring Festival of Politics and Ideas:

The Limerick Spring began in 2014 and since then has touched on many social, political and cultural issues and themes with a strong core value of citizen activism. The Limerick Spring celebrates the role of the citizen in pushing for transparency, openness and holding truth to power, where ever it lies, and aims to shine a spotlight on projects, ideas and citizens that are leading the way and offering a glimpse of what is possible.

Home is where the heart is:

The Limerick Spring theme for 2020 is Home is where the heart is. For many of us, watching our global home suffer with the effects of climate change is a call to action. More locally, the growing number of people struggling to find a secure and affordable place to call home is also a crisis issue. Activism for some of us might focus on local issues such as housing and pollution in our city, but global challenges of climate change and economic inequality are driving people all over the world to become activists seeking solutions to – literally – save the planet. All of us and all of these issues are connected.
