Webinar recording: Building back better

28th October 2020

Part of the Aspect Annual Event 2020 webinar series, this session – Building back better: Bridging the gaps in the green economy, which took place on the 27th October – explored whether the impact of COVID-19 on the transition to a green economy cause it to accelerate or stall. We heard from some innovative social scientists as well as people from industry who are looking at creating new organisations that bridge key gaps in the economic and financial structures needed to build back better.

You can find the full recording of the webinar, and other resources from the session, below.

Should we spend more time talking about methods?

This blog by the Methods for Change team, illustrated by Jack Brougham, asks if we should spend more time talking about the methods we use as researchers. Drawing on a recent paper, we suggest that researchers need to articulate why methods matter in creating change to global challenges. We share three creative techniques that we have experimented with across the Methods for Change project that can encourage playful, reflective conversation about methods and their role in galvanising change.
