About the event

In order to address the challenge of a growing population and to continue to attract industry and development to Galway, a step-change in how we commute and travel day-to-day is required.

This panel discussion aims to encourage an informed public debate on sustainable travel in Galway to support Galway’s development into the future. It promises to be wide-ranging and informative, on a topic that affects all those living, working and visiting Galway.

The panel of speakers will bring different perspectives on how to address these challenges in the future. Engineers Ireland is delighted to facilitate this public discussion and all those interested in finding solutions are invited to attend.
