People in Dublin are worried about the ability of our City to sustain our livelihoods and our quality of life. To assist in overcoming these worries, we need to develop a framework that will help us build a Sustainable Dublin. As a result D5P has been established by the Creative Dublin Alliance to engage people in Dublin about our sustainable future.
D5P aims to create opportunities for us to understand the challenges we face as a city and to collaborate in building a more sustainable Dublin. Through engaging and understanding we can learn how our hopes for the future are complex and interrelated.
Over the coming years D5P will be asking you about a range of topics that relate to a sustainable Dublin. We hope that each topic will help us produce great ideas and new city initiatives and policies. If you would like to help us choose future topics for consultation or would like to suggest your own topics, please let us know.
Please also visit our Blog, where you can read how culture and creativity is important to sustainable development, learn more about '...Sustainable Developoment and Dublin' and engage with some 'Thinking about Healthy Living' and 'Thinking about Working Lives', in additino to some thoughts on cycling: 'On Your Bike' & 'A personal Note on Cycling in Dublin City' and healthy cities: 'Children and Healthy Cities'.

In Gaelic Ireland, 5th Province referred to our minds, where anyone could be free and creative, a place for art, ideas and ideals, the mirror of our souls and our culture. Here we are also being playful with the idea of Dublin as the 5th Province of Ireland.
