We split the atom, founded modern chemistry and explained why the sky is blue


12-09-2013 12:45

For all the austerity, inadequate government action, lack of funding, depressing headlines and lost people, New Thinking = New Ireland reminds us that Ireland has a lot to be proud of. Here twenty one of Ireland’s brightest young thinkers remind us why we’re great and propose their blueprint for Ireland’s recovery. The future is bright!


All of the contributors are associated with some kind of network whether it’s The Global Shaper’s Community of individuals deemed ‘exceptional in their potential’ by the World Economic Forum or the Sandbox Network, a global community of young change makers ‘driven by a desire to change the world for the better’.


They are among the smartest graduates Ireland has produced in recent years. Most of them entered or graduated from college when the recession hit. To date the media has focused on their misfortunes but here they show they are powering ahead when others might give up. They see problems and turn them into opportunities and in New Thinking = New Ireland they show how we can do that across all areas of Irish life.


Among the contributors are John Egan who looks beyond trying to fix our broken banking system and paints a vision for a new kind of banking, developed and shaped by the advent of online technology and social networking; Robert Nielsen who proposes spending fewer hours at the office to create a more productive and successful society; Oisin Hanrahan develops the concept of a start-up economy, calling on the government to adopt the proven processes of successful young companies to ensure economic growth; Julie Clarke proposes a tunneling project that will create a sustainable living environment as urban populations continue to rise; Fred English shows how Ireland’s proud history of curiosity can and is being channeled into research and innovation to solve the problems we face today; Tom Dillon discusses the potential that can be unlocked in Ireland’s agri-sector.

 

New Thinking = New Ireland is published by Gill Books on 20 September 2014, priced at €14.99.
