Ashley recently shared with Fresh Hope eight social trends for 2022. These trends highlight some significant social changes in Australia, particularly in urban contexts, after cities have endured lockdowns over two years.

Ashley’s insights help us to grapple with what people in our cities are dealing with and adapting to this year.
