Watch: 'Building Resilient & Sustainable Communities in Ireland' Webinar Series

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted how important resilient and sustainable communities are to us all.

Decisions we now make in relation to housing, planning and regeneration will play a fundamental role in the future of our communities. Measures that are put in place will need to be ambitious and will require adaptation to a new way of doing things.

Throughout June The Housing Agency hosted a series of expert-led webinars that considered some of the key elements of future resilient and sustainable communities.
