Ethex had some big plans for the spring and summer months. These involved getting out and about to speak at events around the country, meeting up with people and getting involved in some important discussions about how they can work towards a better future, tackling the big issues of climate change, social inequality and declining community resources.

And, no doubt like so many of you, all our plans were suddenly halted when the COVID-19 crisis hit and life changed for us in ways we could hardly have imagined. But in the aftermath of the shock of the scale of the global crisis, a movement started to emerge. The call for the UK to #BuildBackBetter in the wake of the crisis has been growing louder as more and more people see our recovery from the virus as an opportunity to rebuild our society in a fairer and more sustainable way, putting us in a better position to tackle the other major challenges we continue to face.

For that reason, Ethex planned a series of webinars, where people can join us from their own homes, to listen to us and a series of co-hosts discuss the issues we’re still facing and ideas for solutions, including how we can all take action with our money to fund some of the organisations who are taking positive action.

Each of our webinars is recorded and you access the videos using the links below.
