Community Conversation

The SHAPE of Post-Covid Communities

Thursday 17th June 2021, 2-4pm on Zoom

We are inviting community members, organisations, researchers, and policymakers to come together and explore the many meanings, value and power of collaboration and its importance for post-pandemic recovery. We will discuss:

  • What sharing power through meaningful collaboration between community organisations, groups and more powerful institutions means – from relationships to co-produced research and service development.
  • Why we need to learn from meaningful collaborations to ensure a fair and just post-pandemic recovery.
  • How collaborations can be developed to truly share power with communities and why this is essential to address inequalities.

The event is being developed with third sector representatives from Active Inquiry, West of Scotland Regional Equality Council, and Scottish Refugee Council as well as the Scottish Community Development Centre and freelance practitioners, campaigners, activists and researchers from the Glasgow Centre for Population Health and University of Glasgow.

We will ask all participants (and ourselves) to pledge to change something as a result of learning from this event.

This event is now full and we are operating a waiting list. To add your name to this list, please email Carol.Frame@glasgow.ac.uk and please let us know if you have any accessibility requirements which will support your participation.
