Want to attend the following, if so contact cerskine < at >

Fifty people, selected to reflect a cross-section of Irish society, will gather for a weekend in Dublin on the 21st and 22nd March 2009 to answer this question: “What do you think the EU can – and should – do to shape our economic and social future in a globalised world?”

They will be taking part in a Europe-wide consultation of citizens on this most topical of questions. The Irish event, which is being organised by the National Forum On Europe, will be in Dublin Castle with similar consultations happening in each of the 27 EU countries.

The event will be webcast live by RTE.

“If employees misuse email or the internet for only 10 minutes each day, then the cost to Irish small business is approximately €580m a year, in pure productivity terms.”
