The Live Learning Partnership will outline their second report of findings of the research into people’s experience of the pandemic.

Live Learning Partnership – Findings and Analysis

To understand the ongoing impact of the pandemic on individuals, work, the community and the world around us, we need to listen to people’s experiences.

That is why the Institute of Welsh Affairs and the Wales Co-operative Centre, alongside 8 other partner organisations, launched a new initiative to gather these stories using the online storytelling tool Sensemaker®.

This event will launch a second report on our findings and outline why this unique method of collecting people’s unfiltered experiences will bring stories across Wales to the attention of decision-makers.

It’s not our intention to collect personal information about people. This tool will be used to spot general trends and patterns for us to better understand how the pandemic has affected us all.

Come and hear about what we’ve learned, why it matters and how you could use it in your own community or organisation.

We will also show you how to access the anonymised data, which will be available to the public, so anyone can analyse the stories and information gathered to spot specific trends.

Sophie Howe, the Future Generations Commissioner, will attend as our keynote listener, reflecting on the information that we’ve collected and its value going forward.

We know there have been lots of surveys over the last year. This is different. It’s an ongoing listening exercise as things continue to change around us. Help us share your story, so that your experiences can shape our shared future.
