COVID-19 and Community
We all are doing the best we can with the changes that are affecting our lives right now. Knowing that we are moving through this as a community within a nation that has gone ‘hard and early’ gives us the strength to trust in a positive future. Lockdown brings its challenges, but we are also seeing our community make the most of its opportunities. Now is the time for visioning the future we want to create together based on the values we are discovering while spending time in our bubbles. The importance of family and friends, neighbourhoods, local food security, urban green spaces, clean water and air, a transport system that respects natural spaces and quickly reducing carbon emissions come to mind, as well as a circular economy that places equal value on resources and people. In terms of climate change, COVID-19 recovery offers a truly unique opportunity for us to create a sustainable, environment-friendly future society with meaningful jobs and community resilience. Sending our virtual aroha to you all.
