On 14th October from 18.00 to 19.30 BST (UTC/GMT+1) why not join us to explore how Covid and the lockdown have brought out the best (and worst) in us this year, and to draw conclusions about the kind of society we want to live in.

Over the past six months, people all over the world have been tapping into their individual and collective power for the common good and to effect change.

In the UK, examples include frontline health and care workers, essential services employees who have kept the country running, and local volunteers providing food banks or deliveries etc. At an individual level, Marcus Rashford has led a free school meals campaign and Captain Tom Moore raised nearly £33m for NHS. Corporate organisations have joined the effort, with Best Western repurposing 15,000 rooms for the accommodation of medical personnel, low-risk patients and at-risk individuals, Aston Martin making PPE, and brewers switching production from beer to hand sanitizer and many more.

Over the years, our UK society has developed a reputation for fortitude in the face of adversity based on a strong community spirit, and 2020 has seen us live up to this in so many areas. But what is it that makes this happen?

This UK Values Alliance meeting is open to all and has two objectives:

1. Celebration of examples of inspiring behaviour from all walks of life

2. Discussion to identify the key drivers of this behaviour.

If you have personal stories to share, want to hear more stories from other people, are curious about what motivates these people, or just want to contribute to a discussion about what makes UK society tick, please join us for what promises to be an uplifting and thought-provoking session.
