About the session

This is a story of how the NI Innovation Lab worked with the Rathlin Island community to empower them to make a decision on an opportunity presented to them by the Commissioners of Irish Lights. This island community with a population of less than 160 people was offered the site of the East Lighthouse to develop as they saw fit, as long as it can economically sustain itself.
