COVID-19, A Hard Look Back & A Look Ahead: Lessons learned and what needs to change to be more resilient for the next pandemic
What are the lessons of the last 18 months? What could we have done better? What has our experience of the Covid pandemic taught us about how to prepare for the next global shock?
Join us for a discussion about what, so far, we have learned from the Covid Pandemic, from an Economic & Government standpoint and which considerations we need to take now and more importantly what type of actions we need to put into place to increase our resilience going forward.
Our panel will explore:
● Which measures have worked to address the COVID-19 Pandemic and which ones did not and why?
● Which indicators we can rely on to show us where we are in the course of the Pandemic and when we are truly seeing light at the end of the tunnel.
● Looking ahead what will be the long-term fall out of the COVID-19 pandemic and how can it be mitigated.
● What should be the New Normal we want to see our economies & societies come back to.
● How has the pandemic changes societies and businesses/the economies on both sides of the Atlantic (and worldwide)?
● Which measures worked to stabilize the economic fall out and which worked in terms of setting policies. How can we build forward, better?
● What structural changes need to be put into place to manage the next pandemic/major crises (health or environmental)?
