Group Description

The LIFELINE, is a community led demonstration project exploring the potential for transitional land use in Dublin Ireland. Context and transparency form the core of sustainable development. For this reason the research is site based, focusing on a disused industrial heritage site (the Broadstone railway cutting) as a living laboratory to stimulate public awareness and catalyst for the development of a strategic network of green infrastructure in the central north-west area of the city. The project engages in collaborative action inquiry to explore new models of inner-city living, preventative healthcare strategies, urban agriculture, zero waste strategies, enhanced levels of biodiversity and eco-literacy. As a study of transitional strategies the LIFELINE is process driven and has 3 key objectives:

1. Expand civil capacity through collaborative community based action research that explores local context, culture and heritage and the proactive use EU environmental policy.

2. Develop citizen lead demonstration projects, practical, relevant, and of immediate value to Dublin and other European cities.

3. Establish a foundation to support interdisciplinary healthcare design and community based participative research focused on behavioral economics, public health and the impact of environmental design on quality of life.
