Life has changed, work has changed, we have changed. But can we learn from our experiences? How can we use what’s happened to build the future we want to see? What are the lessons from lockdown?

To answer these questions, we’re holding a series of online, facilitated conversations open to those who want to challenge the status quo, learn from each other’s discoveries, and influence what happens next.

Substance Misuse

In this session we’ll share the ways in which services have still been able to work with people facing huge substance-related challenges, and the new difficulties we’ve encountered.

How will it work?

Through a series of facilitated discussions via Zoom. We’ll start things off with a short presentation for context. We’ll then move on to a series of reflective questions, posed to small groups in facilitated breakout rooms.

What’s in it for me?

Sharing experiences, and listening to those of others, can be both affirming and activating. Our aim is through hearing and telling our collective experiences we bring what is possible into a greater awareness to inspire and create collective action and social change.

We can contribute to a social movement that builds more equal and connected services and communities in Wales. We will be reporting back on the cross-cutting themes that emerge from the Lessons from Lockdown discussions.

When is it?

July 14th, 2020. 1:00pm – 2:30pm.
