Your Dublin, Your Voice – a civic engagement initiative
Your Dublin, Your Voice is an exciting initiative of the four Dublin local authorities that gives Dubliners and visitors a unique opportunity to provide opinions and views on what they love, like and despair at in the capital. The project seeks feedback and suggestions, via online surveys, on a range of issues that impact on quality of life in Dublin.
Launched in October 2010, the project has established Dublin’s first opinion panel for the city region. The panel now boasts some 4,000 members representing men and women of all ages and backgrounds including some 50 nationalities and hailing from every county in Ireland.
Your Dublin, Your Voice is a highly cost effective mechanism for public sector decision makers to draw on the combined views, values, experiences, knowledge and skills of the true stakeholders in any city – its citizens. – in order to drive change for the region.

Your Dublin, Your Voice, Surveys and Results 2010 - 2013
Your Dublin, Your Voice – Making Dublin Digital
Making Dublin Digital was carried out during July and August 2012 when almost 2,000 Your Dublin, Your Voice panelists gave their views and experiences on the day-to-day value of digital technology, the quality of the broadband offering, the usability of government websites and how the city region can function as a better place to live, work and visit by integrating digital technologies into all aspects of the urban environment. The results of the survey continue to feed into a Digital Masterplan for the Dublin City Region which will be published in June 2013 as part of a campaign to ensure Dublin’s place at the top tier of Digital Cities worldwide.
Your Dublin, Your Voice –Shopping and Socializing in the City
During June and July 2011, some 2,000 people responded to the Your Dublin, Your Voice survey on the shopping and social scene in the capital. People gave detail of their preferences for socializing and dining out in Dublin as well as a wealth of suggestions as to how these experiences could be improved. The results of the survey were disseminated to retail, business and tourist associations as well as public policymakers and city planners.
Your Dublin, Your Voice –Living, Working and Studying in the City
The first Your Dublin, Your Voice survey during the period October to December 2010 represented the first public opinion panel of its kind to be run by Dublin City Council. With almost 2,300 respondents, representing some 60 nationalities and hailing from every county in Ireland it was clear that Your Dublin, Your Voice had the potential to engage people and to gather the important views and experiences of people from all age groups and backgrounds with a connection or interest in how Dublin develops in the coming years. The results of the first survey were presented and debated at a Hear It, Debate it, Change it workshop.
