Established in the year 2000, Convergence is Ireland’s longest running sustainable living festival. For more than a decade this unique programme of events has celebrated community resilience and social inclusion whilst championing the changes needed to create a sustainable economy, society and built environment.
These ideas were obviously not heeded during the wanton recklessness of the boom years, but the resulting downturn has brought the need for systemic change into sharp focus for most people. It is important to point out that there is still time for Ireland to forge a path towards a brighter, greener, more sustainable future. Convergence 16 focuses on the huge potential in this country for developing green jobs and resilient communities. These two exciting areas of opportunity are absolutely key to any plans to reinvigorate this country.
From its beginnings in Dublin’s Temple Bar at the Cultivate Centre, Convergence has grown into a nationwide festival showing the appetite for sustainable solutions to our problems. Join us for workshops, forums, films, and celebrations and find out how you can get involved in shaping the future of your local economy, your community, and your country.
The Convergence Festival brings together a wide variety of stakeholders, from across Ireland, with interests in environment, community and sustainable
