Event description
Covid-19 is a turning point for humanity. In times of crisis, adaptation and reinvention are crucial. What can we learn from this?

About this Event

What started in Wuhan in late 2019, has now affected the entire world. Such historical events will have consequences on the future.

This webinar series will talk about the impact of COVID-19 and how it has and will begin to influence our decisions.

What can humanity learn from the global pandemic and how is sustainable development affected? We will be focusing on a variety of different areas including community preparedness, migration, entrepreneurship, tech and focusing overall on sustainability.

Sustainability is a broad term that is not only limited to environmental sustainability. By definition, sustainable development is development that "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." In times of crisis, adaptation and reinvention are crucial.
