The videos provide an overview of CONSENSUS’s key findings and innovative research processes. Their release coincides with the launch of a brand new project website,, containing CONSENSUS’s latest reports, publications and a regularly-updated blog.

Since its launch in 2009, CONSENSUS has been committed to using innovative social science and collaborative research methods, engaging over 100,000 members of the public and 100 government, private sector, and civil society stakeholders through workshops and interactive exhibits. Involving researchers from both Trinity College Dublin and the National University of Ireland, Galway, CONSENSUS is funded by STRIVE (Science, Technology, Research and Innovation for the Environment Programme 2007–2013) and administered by the Irish Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Postdoctorate researchers from TCD Geography, Dr. Ruth Doyle and Dr. Laura Devaney are leading CONSENSUS’s innovative research on sustainable water and food consumption.
