Solving our own problems: a weekend of generating ideas

This report details the findings from a two day town health check seminar called Solving our own problems! Held in Carrick-on-Suir on November 7th and 8th, 2014, the event’s concept was that five experts / mentors in various areas (tourism, heritage, public realm, retail, roads and parking) would help the people of Carrick come up with ideas to help tackle their place’s issues. The role of the mentors was to assist the people of the town in coming up with solutions that are sustainable, i.e. that are doable, taking into account the skills and abilities of those who live there.

At the end of the report is a template which will allow other towns do run their own event.
