COVID, COP26 and Urban Schools

Examining the role of schools in urban communities

This event has now passed. Watch a recording of the discussion above.

This live online panel discussion explores what role schools should play in their urban communities. How have schools supported families and communities – beyond online learning – during COVID? And what are the lessons for how schools can contribute to wider goals, such as a cleaner and greener environment? The session looks at activities at different schools in Sheffield, London and Buenos Aires through discussion with two school leaders and a community representative. The discussion is followed by a Q&A with the online audience.
