By looking at the issues that are affecting communities now, this event series hopes to better understand how communities can not only respond to COVID-19 but renew and increase their resilience following it. Future sessions will look at food security, mental health, and the shifting values and ideas emerging as a result of the pandemic.

This event is open to all and will be relevant to individuals and organisations working in or with communities, thinking about the challenges and opportunities they face and what this means for their future.

Good Things Foundation is a social change charity, helping people to improve their lives through digital. They tackle the most pressing social issues of our time, working with partners in thousands of communities across the UK and further afield.
