Participating People, published jointly with The Wheel, is the final report of The People’s Conversation.

Over the last five years, The Wheel and the Carnegie UK Trust have organised group conversations that challenged people across Ireland to consider three questions:

  • What is shaping our future?
  • What do citizens expect?
  • What is expected of citizens?

The People’s Conversation has seen hundreds of people take part in engaged discussions about what needs to change to create a truly inclusive and participative Ireland and has resulted in the publication of four influential reports. Participating People – the final report – presents a blueprint of actions to support a more inclusive Ireland with a vision to create a more Enabling State.
