Remobilising Public Estates: Perfect Circle announces second webisode

Millions of community assets across the country are currently closed in a bid to combat the spread of COVID 19

In a bid to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect the most vulnerable in society, millions of community assets across the country are currently closed.

While it is difficult to predict when services are likely to re-open to the public, it is important that local authorities are prepared for a full and compliant reactivation so communities can start to re-build real life connections after a period of isolation.

As part of the new and virtual CC Live series, our second webisode will discuss how the public sector can effectively remobilise buildings following the period of lockdown and help communities get back the services they rely on.

CC Live, hosted by Cartwright Communications, is a series of webcasts or ‘webisodes’ designed to help everyone stay connected. They are short, snappy and informative broadcasts, professionally produced and presented by former TV presenters.

Each episode features conversations with industry leaders from a variety of sectors – followed by a live Q&A session – as everyone works through the coronavirus pandemic and beyond.

A few weeks ago, we hosted our first webisode as part of CC Live, which looked at maintaining engagement in lockdown. Missed out? No need to worry – you can watch the full webcast here.

Episode two: Remobilising Public Estates

Register today to join us for our second episode, which takes place on Friday, 29 May at 2pm.
