THE EPS is hosting its latest webinar later this month. Free, and open to non-members, the November 24th event will explore lessons that can be learned from the COVID-19 pandemic and features international speakers.

For  “Managing the Next Crisis: Twelve Principles for Dealing with Viral Uncertainty” we will be joined by speakers from the US including Katherine Barrett, Richard Green and Donald F Kettl. All three are co-authors of a report on the lessons of COVID for governance. The experiences of the last 18 months have pointed to the importance of well-managed actions at all levels of government–and across governmental boundaries. This session will focus on the work of our three speakers in exploring the work of governments in battling COVID-19, the light this work shines on the strategies and tactics that governments have launched to fight the pandemic, and the enduring lessons for improving governance in general–and for fighting the inevitable next battles we’ll face.

The report can be found here  It is free to download. Please feel free to share this link.

The webinar will take place on November 24th at 16:00hrs.  Non members are free to attend this session.
