Event description
Reset Summit will bring together key stakeholders to share perspectives on the challenges & opportunities of resetting the Dublin Economy

About this Event

The Covid-19 crisis and the associated political, economic and social disruptions have drastically changed the traditional context for decision-making and daily living in our capital city. Furthermore the inconsistencies, inadequacies and contradictions of multiple systems: social, education, health, financial, energy, economic systems have become increasingly exposed. The crisis also presents a unique opportunity to reset national and city economies, through changing the priorities of societies and business models to support an inclusive, sustainable, innovative and altogether better future.

Reset Summit will consider how to reset and build back a better Dublin following the COVID 19 global pandemic and subsequent economic crisis. The summit will bring together key local and national stakeholders to share perspectives, insights and ideas regarding the need, challenges and opportunities of resetting the Dublin economy. Key stakeholders will share perspectives and ideas as part of panel discussions, based on four interlinked themes:

  1. Innovation & Entrepreneurship
  2. Sustainability & Climate Change
  3. Employment & Skills
  4. Culture & Community

The Summit will take place as a fully online event and will be broadcast live. It will also be recorded for repeat viewing. Please register well in advance as places are limited. Registered attendees will be emailed the live event link on the day before the summit.

Reset Summit is part of the Dublin City Summit Series - an initiative of the Economic Development and Enterprise Strategic Policy Committee (SPC) which is made up of councillors, industry and community representatives. Each summit brings together key stakeholders including policy makers, elected officials, topic experts and practitioners to share insights, information and perspectives in order to encourage greater collaboration, awareness and development regarding relevant policy issues and challenges facing the city. After each summit, an Outcomes Report is produced and disseminated to support future policy formulation, knowledge sharing and relevant economic development. The Outcomes Reports of previous summits are available: Here

Reset Summit is also an initiative of the Dublin Regional Enterprise Plan (DREP) and the REP COVID-19 response to use collective resources and expertise to support regional economies and recovery. Further information on the DREP is available: Here
