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.
