PeopleTalk - Citizen Juries Shaping Government
YOUR SAY IN PUBLIC SECTOR REFORM
We want to hear about your experience, good and bad, of public services. The good shows what’s possible. The bad shows what needs to change. What has your experience taught you about how public services work and fail to work? We will be running seven Public Listening Workshops throughout County Galway in the coming weeks.
We are the Galway County PeopleTalk Jury, set up last year at the request of Galway County Council. After a public recruitment campaign, we were chosen by lottery, six male and six female, from those who volunteered. Our task is to formulate practical proposals for public sector reform. We cannot do this effectively without the help of our fellow citizens in Public Listening Workshops.
PeopleTalk – Citizen Juries Shaping Government - is an initiative of the Jesuits in Ireland. It is endorsed, not only by Galway County Council, but by ALL political groupings in Dáil Éireann. The objective is to rebuild trust in public life by promoting public sector reform from the citizen’s point of view.
