Changes to Irish Geography
Volume 47(1) of Irish Geography will be the last time we will produce a hard-copy version of the journal. As you will be aware, we have moved to an on-line publishing model and in future all issues will be available via our website www.irishgeography.ie.
The GSI committee thank you for your patience while making this transition which will give us considerable freedom to ensure the best path for the journal. We would ask all members to register on www.irishgeography.ie. This will allow you to browse current and past issues of IG - this is also the pathway for submissions to the journal.
Impressions of sustainability - invitation to participate
The research project "Green Albano" explores how the design of urban environments can support more sustainable lifestyles. As part of this we are collecting everyday impressions of sustainability, i.e. what in your everyday life makes you think of sustainability - this could be a place, an object, a service or a situation.
Participating in this study is super-easy:
* Take a photo of a place, a thing or a situation you meet in your everyday life that makes you think of sustainability.?
* Publish this on Twitter, and tag your post #greenalbanopic and @greenalbano
* If you do not have Twitter, or if you want to be anonymous you can email your pic to the project researcher Josefin Wangel (firstname.lastname@example.org) who will then upload the picture directly to the project's Twitter-account @greenalbano
