#LearningFromCrisis Connections Ep. 3: Back to work
Listen now
Description
This episode, the third in our Learning From Crisis 'Connections' series, is about how we're getting back to work in the recovery phase. As the lockdown eases, all sectors are under pressure to return to work and help get the economy moving. However, Construction, Higher Education and Hospitality are under the microscope perhaps more than other sectors. This is thanks to the number of jobs they generate, and their high contributions to UK GDP. These sectors also play a significant role in the viability of our local economies and urban spaces and their health has knock-on effects up and down the supply chain. They share multiple challenges such as ensuring employee health and safety, rebuilding consumer confidence and maintaining business viability. The solutions they'll need to find are distinct but transferable to other sectors and to practitioners also working to adapt their work to the new normal. Speaker: Chris Wallace, Construction Director, Lovell Partnerships Rose Luckin, Prof of Learner Centred Design, UCL Knowledge Lab Ian Coll, FOunder & MD, Mamuska Restaurants Host & producer: Oli Pinch, Head of Networks, Future of London.
