Event description
The news can be overwhelming and distressing at the best of times, but now more than ever it can feel as though there is a lot to absorb.

About this Event

But even some of the darkest clouds can have silver linings. From sharing seedlings with neighbours as part of new vegetable-growing initiatives, to countless acts of kindness helping others through difficult times, long-standing Guardian series The Upside is dedicated to telling real stories of hope.

Join us for a live streamed event with Upside editor Mark Rice-Oxley, as he talks to our panel about the ways in which the pandemic is reshaping communities around the UK and beyond. Has the virus made us better people?

Mark will be joined by Guardian Community editor Caroline Bannock; Graham Crow, professor of Sociology and Methodology at The University of Edinburgh; and Helen Russell, author of The Atlas of Happiness.

Running time: 60 minutes
