Whilst the way forward feels by no means clear we have decided to host a short online discussion for those that would like to join to cover two things:
1) Allow those of us who have been finding the posts here stimulating a space to share some reflections
2) Introduce the sister website (https://britainaftercovid.net/) that has been established building on the links and points that have so far been shared here, gathering any initial feedback and brainstorming possible next steps.
If you don't intend to join us but have thoughts on either of the above points please do comment!
