Community Collaboration through Crisis - Powered by PechaKucha


Monday 21 September 2020
16:00 - 17:00

How have councils, companies and communities collaborated through crisis to have a positive social impact?
The power of community action in the face of the pandemic has shown how resilient and compassionate our neighbours can be. Local authorities, housing associations, architects and more have collaborated with local community members on a huge number of initiatives during lockdown and continue to deliver social impact in these hard times. 
Join us as we celebrate some of the inspiring projects across London that are making a difference to so many people’s lives during the crisis.
