GETTING THERE

The Mansion House is situated in Dawson Street, Dublin 2 – here is a map to help you located it. Access to the Oak Room (where our event is being held) is via the entrance to the left of the building. This is a shared entrance with the Round Room. For those with a disability, access is via a platform lift which can be found to the left of the building. Please let us know in advance if you require assistance, so a member of the Mansion House staff can be assigned to help you on the day.

Public transport is probably the best option as car parking in front of the Mansion House is strictly forbidden. The location is close to the LUAS at the Dawson stop and to bus routes that travel along Dawson Street.

The nearest car parking is either at Dawson Street (which is via School House Lane and is immediately behind the Mansion House) or at the Setanta Centre.

As always at our events,
an important part will be the
Q&A session which will allow full
participation by those attending.

THEME

Throughout Europe and in Ireland, the greens have had many policy successes. However, many of these achievements are often ignored or dismissed in the media and social media.

In this seminar communication experts and campaigners discuss how green messaging can be improved and how the greens can better inform the public and change public awareness and consciousness.
