Future Galway

We want to hear your view on the future of Galway

Galway Chamber’s vision is to make Galway the model in Ireland, fueled by the energy, drive, culture and diversity of the people of Galway, for inclusive innovation and economic growth.

These include promoting and growing quality jobs for all, creating dynamic, resilient communities across the county and improving the quality of life for all.

We want to hear from you, to understand the ambitions you have for a Galway of the future, one that will be sustainable, smarter, healthier, low carbon and economically thriving.

The committees of Galway Chamber have a draft set of ambitions across different strategic pillars, these are enablers to dialogue and will evolve (see below).

Critically after inputs from many, we will have a clear vision for the coming decades for our city and county.

Submissions should be sent to: future@galwaychamber.com
