Firstly, a big thanks to everyone who braved the wet weather last week to join our Eco Showcase. It was a really interesting event with FoodCloud, The Nu Wardrobe and Thriftify sharing their stories.
OUR NEXT EVENT: In October, our Smart Cities for Good event focuses on projects using data capture and (IoT) technology to make Dublin accessible for all citizens. Conor Cahill showcases the Liberty Bell - a product that simplifies the gathering of qualitative data about the movement of bicyclists and pedestrians through a neighbourhood. Lye Ogunsanya presents Seaprk which offers real time parking space information for people with disabilities. We are meeting from 6-8pm in Bank of Ireland Workbench in TCD on Tuesday 17 October - Get your free tickets here.
