Dublin City Council, Chief Executive
"Cities are much more than static collections of buildings, traffic systems and thoroughfares. They are constantly changing and evolving in response to the lives and experiences that shape them. Dublin City Council’s stewardship tasks us with ensuring that these changes are to the benefit of those who live in, work in and visit our capital city.
By marrying practicality with aspiration, Dublin City Council Beta provides us with a concise methodology to anticipate and answer the needs of citizens and businesses. By creating these interfaces between the city and its stakeholders, every Beta Project provides proof positive of a more engaged City Council, offering tangible evidence of our commitment to listen, to assess and to change. I look forward to watching it continue to grow and am delighted to offer my ongoing support."
Owen P Keegan,
Chief Executive, Dublin City Council
