The pandemic is serving as a wake-up call, laying bare our inequities and fragile systems. In many nations, the coronavirus has exposed the greed, exhaustion, and opportunity hoarding inherent in inequitable societies. We cannot go back to normal, because our recent past is no utopia. This session will explore strategies for reimagining a recovery that enables more resilient and stronger communities, cities, and systems for the next crisis and decade.
