At this open forum, participatory researchers Kye Askins and Sara Kindon will share insights about their work in relation to emotional citizenry and solidarity.

Brexit has exposed huge faultlines in politics, accountability, public life and social attitudes. Following on from our Unbrexable event on caring and connections in European Scotland, Luke Devlin from the CHE will discuss where we are at, one year on. What has changed in the wider political landscape? Where lie the opportunities and challenges for grassroots movements? We invite participants to contribute to the discussion, a chance to reflect on current work, to identify gaps and to forge new connections.

Sara Kindon is Associate Professor at the School of Geography, Environment and Earth Sciences, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand/Aotearoa.

Kye Askins is a Reader at the School of Geographical and Earth Sciences at the University of Glasgow.
