6. Liverpool Responds: Who Cares? What kind of life after COVID-19?

The prospect of a successful vaccine has brought renewed hope to many people during the continuing COVID-19 crisis. But even if these vaccines are as successful as hoped, the huge social, health and economic challenges raised by the pandemic will not have disappeared, and must be confronted to ensure a healthier, fairer, more sustainable society in future.

This discussion – initiated by The Metropolitan Cathedral and Liverpool Cathedral in collaboration with the University of Liverpool’s Heseltine Institute – will examine these issues, reflecting on the role of the Churches in a post-COVID world and ask how we can all help to rebuild the Liverpool City Region.
