Join us for an opportunity to ask questions and share ideas about how the city, and the country, can recover from COVID-19 in ways that create a more just, inclusive, and sustainable society.
London MP Peter Fragiskatos, MPP Peggy Sattler and Deputy Mayor Jesse Helmer will take part in this panel discussion about what a Green and Inclusive Recovery could look like in the London area. What could it include and how can we ensure everyone is part of it?
The discussion will open with a short introduction and then questions submitted by citizen and advocacy groups across London. Time will be allocated for questions from town hall participants as well.
Registration is free on Eventbrite.
