Mapping Green Dublin has been designed to be open access, where scientific data is shared to empower and enable action and change. Our resources are being made available for your use! The process through which the project was developed has been fully documented in the Community Strategy. Other communities might take some of the lessons and experiences and adapt them for their own neighbourhoods.
Below we have provided direct, open-access links to the various outputs and publications from the project.
- Community greening strategy
- Presentation on tree data for the community launch event (March 7th 2020)
- Urban proto-typing toolkit
- PLOTS tool
- Summary poster presentation of the project
- Camac go-along project summary poster
- EPA scientific report * COMING SOON *
National radio coverage – why not listen here?
- On RTE Drivetime on May 13th 2020, Gerald Mills described the tree database as a ‘fundamental part of the geography of our city’. You can listen to his extended interview here (22:00 mins).
- Seoidín O’Sullivan also talked to Philip Boucher Hayes on RTE Drivetime about why her art project PLOTS responded to the 2km Covid 19 distance limit ‘The 2 km radius means we are all currently hyper local. We are walking and accessing our neighbourhoods daily and this provides an opportunity to see deficits in our communities around green infrastructure. Where can we improve cycle routes , pedestrian and wheel chair/ buggy access? How and where can we improve biodiversity and planting?’
