What do we want to happen when we get to the new post-Covid normal?

Mar 27, 2020

This online conversation is part of the series of conversations "Hunkered Down Alone Together."

Alan Stoga, chairman of the Tällberg Foundation starts off the conversation based on the article, Civilization Interrupted, which asks us to consider, what happens when Covid-19 is only a bad memory? More to the point, what do we want to happen when we get to the new post-Covid normal? The online conversation took place on Thursday, March 26 as part of the Tällberg SNF Fellows “Hunkered Down Alone Together Conversations”, a weekly long-distance discussion series.
