LGIU Fortnightly: Work and play


This time Jen Glover and Ingrid Koehler discuss the future of work and play in a Post-Covid world. As we wrap up our summer holidays (in whatever form they may have taken), we spoke to Cllr Robert Francis-Davies from the City and County of Swansea about tourism emerging from lockdown. As we start thinking about going back to work, and maybe even to the office, we spoke to Sharon O’Dea on the future of the workplace and how councils can change their own workplaces and help their communities adapt to changing work practice.

Plus we talked about going back to school, Cllr Awards our Post-Covid Councils work with members, the recent book club and more.
