Understanding Welsh Places: Resilience of Welsh Places report launch
Co-written with Welsh consultancy firm The Means, this report draws on original research and the Understanding Welsh Places online tool to explore how Welsh places responded to Covid-19.
We use stories from communities across Wales to understand how residents used local facilities and assets during the crisis, and what we learned about Welsh places’ preparedness to respond to an event of this scale.
We then make recommendations about how the Welsh government and local authorities can invest in the facilities and planning to be better prepared for future crises.
The event is chaired by Auriol Miller, Director of the IWA, who is joined by:
- Andy Regan – Policy and External Affairs Manager, Institute of Welsh Affairs
- Peter Williams – Director, The Means
- Robyn Lovelock – Programme Manager, North Wales Economic Ambition Board
