The City Through Global Citizens’ Eyes



The City Research exercise invited Creativity and Change participants to explore Cork from a global citizen’s perspective. Working in groups, they were asked to consider:

The values of global citizenship – What values they see expressed in the city that they would like to see more of, and that contribute to a more sustainable future. What values do they see expressed that they believe hold back the progression to a more sustainable future?

The eyes and heart of a global citizen – Moving through the city as global citizens, what questions come to mind about the environment surrounding them?

Expressing yourself as a global citizen – Write message to members of the public to support public engagement with their sense of global citizenship. 

Each group photographed their observations and interactions and presented them to one another back at the Crawford. These are some of their photographs.
