An open, politically independent and inclusive space for discussion and debate is the best way to identify the challenges we face in Wales because of Covid-19, and work out where the opportunities for real change are.
We are well placed to bring those voices together, and the IWA #RethinkingWales series will explore how different sectors need to respond to this crisis and how we need to start thinking differently.
The first session will be taking place on Thursday, 16 April at 11 am. We will be emailing confirmed attendees on the morning of the 16th with details of the Zoom call.
It will be an hour long panel discussion on Zoom chaired by IWA Director, Auriol Miller and attendees will be able to ask questions on the live chat.
The topic of the discussion is: What do we need to be thinking about in the long term?
Joining us in this opening session will be:
- Rachel Bowen – Director of Policy and Public Affairs, Colleges Wales
- Stuart Ropke – Chief Executive at Community Housing Cymru
- Rebecca Woolley – Director Citizens Advice Cymru
- Laura McAllister – Professor of Public Policy and the Governance of Wales at the Wales Governance Centre, Cardiff University
