Announcement: launch event of Social Justice Ireland’s Sustainable Progress Index (20 Feb 2018)

By Sara Bourke – Social Justice Ireland

On 20 February, Social Justice Ireland will launch the 2018 Sustainable Progress Index, measuring Ireland’s progress on Economy, Society and the Environment.  As in previous years, we are interested in measuring real progress by marking the UN World Day of Social Justice with this free seminar looking at Ireland’s progress to date in meeting its responsibilities under the Global (Sustainable Development) Goals. The event will take place from 9:30-13:00 at the Carmelite Centre, Aungier Street, Dublin 2, Ireland.

The Index will be presented by Professor Charles MA Clark of St John’s University, New York and Dr Catherine Kavanagh of University College Cork.  Responding to the paper will be Michael Taft, Economic Analyst and Trades Unionist and Niamh Garvey, Head of Policy at Trocaire, a leading global development agency.

Further information on the index will be available on the website www.socialjustice.ie following the launch.

Social Justice Ireland is an independent think tank and justice advocacy organisation that advances the lives of people and communities through providing independent social analysis and effective policy development to create a sustainable future for every member of society and for societies as a whole.
