SDG 11: Sustainable Cities and communities
In every major town and region in the country, there is a Chamber of Commerce. Each Chamber strives to develop sustainable cities and economically vibrant communities. If Ireland is to become a more sustainable society, the way we build and plan our urban environment needs a revolution.
We believe that cities and towns needs more housing, transport and social infrastructure throughout the urban built environment which integrates housing, transport hubs, and civic spaces (including schools and recreational amenities). Because of our widespread geographic reach, we believe that we can represent SDG 11 in developing sustainable cities and communities across Ireland. Through our Housing Taskforce, we work with our members to advocate for reforms and policy changes that will enable the construction of affordable appropriate homes in our cities and communities.
