Join us for our online keynote lecture with Gee Sinha, Director of ReSpace Projects and chaired by MSc Learning Environments Lead, Dr Jos Boys.

How can we reuse wasted resources for social good to scale and mitigate risk in a pre and post-pandemic world?
Join us for our online keynote lecture where we’ll be discussing whether respacing can offer a glimpse of a better normal. Gee will also be delving into ReSpace Projects, an opportunity that respaces and reuses empty buildings to make a better city, instead of just a better profit.
In just a matter of days, the project turned the world's first ever Community and Enterprise Hub into the world's first Independent Mutual Aid support hub. From a standing start they delivered over 20,000 meals to people across the North and East of London - for free with no funding.
“I'd like to show you a little of how we did it and introduce our "reCOVER" plan which is a strategy that can help build back to a better normal.” - Gee Sinha
