The Road To Renewal

Innovation, adaptation and resilience - your response to Covid-19

The food and farming landscapes have changed almost overnight and communities are coming together to support each other. This will have long-lasting and far-reaching effects into the future.

We are collecting and documenting all the ways in which people are responding across the UK – to show how the food and farming sectors adapt and the effect the pandemic is having on rural communities.

We're also commissioning polling and planning other research on the responses to Covid-19 – if you are too, let's team up and coordinate. See the research tab for more information.

Do you have a story to tell?

Has your business or community had to adapt fast? How? Do you have a story that reveals the fragilities – or the resilience – of your local food situation? What’s working – and what is not? We’d love to hear from you.

We’re looking for short 2-5 minute videos or written stories from people all over the UK.

This can be just you, filming yourself on your smartphone, or you can involve the people around you (in line with government social distancing guidelines!) There's no need for it to be polished – it's the stories we're really interested in.
