Please use the chat to post the subject of your question. You will then be invited to unmute individually and pose your question to Victor.
What is it that fundamentally stops governments (of all colours) ending rough sleeping in ordinary times, when they can do it in a crisis?
Topic: creating systemic change vs. reports with no action
Victor, how do you think we should achieve more diversity amongst the 'Gold Leaders' of the COVID response?
Victor - does the lack of diversity amongst the power-brokers prevent an empathic approach to the problem of homelessness
The population clapped every week for the NHS for a while which for a while felt like a symbol of great social solidarity (although many NHS colleagues felt uncomfortable about being clapped just for doing their job). Was it? Is there anything we should do to harness these apparent support for collective action?
clapping was cheap
Victor you say it has been revealed that the people will respond if shown the evidence, but how can we maintain this in a world that may have had enough of experts?
The Covid crisis has shown the benefits of leadership based on a shared sense of purpose, cross-system integrated leadership structures and a flexible approach to problem solving. What do you think it would take (other than another crisis) to maintain that approach?
exacerbated the inverse care law - pity that our leaders have been disconnected to the extent of asking the populace to "let them eat cake"
Victor - thank you so much - great presentation and reflections. I always learn so much when I hear you speak.
Thank you - great talk and reflections.
