The PIER Blue Space Survey Researchers at NUI Galway is looking for your opinion on using Irish rivers, lakes and seas. The findings will help design strategies to improve blue spaces for future generations.

We all use our Blue Spaces (rivers, lakes and seas) in different ways – some of us get in swimming, kayaking, sailing, fishing or paddling with the kids, others watch from our shores, running, walking or cycling. Some of us are dependent on our recreational waters for our livelihoods; some of us work in research, policy and regulation to protect our waters; others use our waters every day for fun, some as day trippers others annual staycationers. Whatever relationship you have with our rivers, lakes and seas in Ireland – you can have a say in how to protect and improve their usage in the future.

The PIER Blue Space Survey is your opportunity to have your voice heard on the barriers to using Blue Spaces in Ireland. You can also tell us the reasons why our rivers, lakes and seas are important to you. It takes less than 10 minutes to complete and all responses are anonymous.

Your voice will help develop collective strategies to make our rivers, lakes and seas better in the future
