What inspires you to think differently about how we live in the city?
And, if you were to transform Dublin, what would you do?
Urban Knights is a series of talks that celebrates urban crusaders, innovators and those who are actively changing how we behave, think and engage with the city.
We have invited a multidisciplinary cross section of Irish and international urban knights to discuss their ideas and to talk about the practicalities of implementing them. Acting as a platform, Urban Knights allows you to meet like-minded people who are interested in creating urban change.
