#LivefromLucy: 'Social innovation within and beyond the pandemic' with Dr Neil Stott

Wed 7 April

Lucy Cavendish College

All organizations – public, private or social sector – have experienced massive disruptions to how they organise due to COVID-19 and forced to re-think how to deliver goods and services. The pandemic has brought existing poverty, disadvantage and inequities into sharp relief as well as creating new social problems. In this talk, Dr Neil Stott will discuss how social innovation activists, educators and organisations have reacted to the crisis and what post-pandemic social organising might look like.
