Short-Termism Isn’t Working. Why Northern Ireland Needs to Think Longer-Term
As we emerge from the global pandemic, so much of Northern Ireland society is changing rapidly, in our more diverse demographic make-up and how we live and work, yet so much of our politics and public discourse remains static.
Join Northern Slant and a panel of commentators as we consider how, together, we can think longer-term in our politics, governance and what it means to be a citizen in Northern Ireland today.
As a number of political and societal factors continue to shape Northern Ireland, how can we promote longer-term strategic thinking to meet the changing needs of citizens?
How can our political parties embrace the demographic, political and social changes taking place in Northern Ireland? In a post-pandemic world, to what extent are our public services prepared to respond effectively and adapt to multiple risks that might lie ahead? How can we, as citizens, reimagine our relationship with democracy and play a more active role in representing the interests of a place in transition?
Northern Slant is a not-for-profit independent media organisation which exists to encourage constructive changes in Northern Irish political and civic discourse. It showcases a wide range of content from creators of diverse backgrounds and political perspectives.
