Webinar: Young People and the Pandemic: Doing Socially Distanced Social Responsibility
Overcoming digital divides, building social connections and acting in a socially responsible way in the midst of a global pandemic isn’t an easy task. COVID-19 has exacerbated existing inequalities, with those already experiencing digital poverty, excluded from what was an almost exclusively digital policy response to the COVID-19 outbreak. This webinar series will discuss how or indeed if we can do socially distanced social responsibility. In the second of our ISR Series on Socially Distanced Social Responsibility we will be focussing on the pandemic experiences of young people, asking how young people and youth work can be socially distanced, and sharing examples of enacting online and ‘covid-safe’ social responsibility with young people.

EdgeTalks – Covid-19: A Year On?
In Spring 2020, the Institute for Social Responsibility asked the Edge Hill University research community to submit articles on a range of issues detailing how the pandemic has affected their field. They responded with a range and depth of posts so vast that it now stands as an historic document charting our immediate response to the pandemic. We now invite you to join us to mark the anniversary of lockdown on Wednesday 24th March 2021, where 5 of our original bloggers will give their take on one of the overarching themes of the blog. Using their original blog as a launchpad, they will look back and look forward, to assess the impact of the pandemic and what might happen next. This event takes the form of an ‘Edge Talk’, with no more than 10 minutes per speaker/blogger.
