Join Astronomer Royal and futurist Martin Rees and Oxford Martin School founder Ian Goldin for a vision of the post-COVID world that goes far beyond recovery.
We are at a crossroads. The wrecking-ball of Covid-19 has destroyed global norms. Many think that after the devastation there will be a bounce back.
For Oxford’s Professor Ian Goldin, a recovery is simply not good enough. Drawing on his experience as President Mandela’s economic advisor and as a former Vice President of the World Bank, the founder of the Oxford Martin School will show us how a crisis creates opportunities for profound change.
In this conversation with Astronomer Royal, futurist and former President of the Royal Society Martin Rees, Professor Goldin will explore the challenges and opportunities posed by the pandemic, ranging from globalisation to the future of jobs, income inequality and geopolitics, the climate crisis and the modern city. Don’t miss this bold call for an optimistic future and one we all have the power to create.
