Let’s work together to develop a Vision for Community Wellbeing for Kilkenny.
What is a Vision for Community Wellbeing?
Developing a Vision for Community Well being means thinking about what we have and what we need to help Kilkenny to be as great as it can be for us and for the many generations that follow on from ours.
Our well being is affected by many things; the economy, the environment, community services and more.
As part of a national initiative, the PPN has been tasked by Government with the development of a Vision for Community Well being at a Municipal District and County level. This work will help identify actions that can be undertaken by communities to increase the quality of life in Kilkenny.
Come along to a virtual workshop!
In progressing this initiative, the PPN is hosting a number of virtual workshops during the month of November to continue this important conversation. You are invited to attend the workshop for your area:

What will a Vision for Community Well being look like?
Although we often think about well being in terms of good physical and mental health, it can also describe the wider conditions we need as individuals and communities to have a better quality of life, healthier environment and increased prosperity. Community Well being, rather than an individual, is where the conditions applying for everyone in the community are the focus.
So a community with a high level of well being is likely to be one where all people have a strong sense of belonging and identity, opportunities to work individually and together for the common good, are able to support each other through different life stages, access the services they need, live consciously sustainable lives in a positive environment, and are able to participate in the making the decisions that affect them, and so forth.
Under this programme, Kilkenny PPN will consider all the aspects of community well being together to help identify actions that can be undertaken by communities. These aspects include social and community development; environment and sustainability; work, economy and resources; health; values, culture and meaning; and participation, democracy and good governance.
