Post-Covid-19

Our selection of videos on this month's theme: Post-Covid-19 Futures

 

Imagining a post pandemic world
The coronavirus pandemic is forcing nations and corporates to do things differently, as the world adopts measures like social distancing. Futurists say this time is an opportunity for all to reimagine how they live and work. They say the world, and especially Africa, cannot go back to the old way of doing things. I'm joined now via skype by Njeri Mwagiru, from the Institute for Futures Research.

Global Perspectives on the World After COVID-19 Webinar
The context for the webinars is that the world is grappling with the twin challenges of tackling the unfolding COVID-19 crisis and trying to prepare for an uncertain future on the other side of it. In this unprecedented situation, a growing number of politicians and business leaders are beginning to acknowledge the advice of future thinkers, futurists, and scenario planners on how important it is to also be thinking about the next horizon and beyond. A forward thinking approach can help ensure that the decisions we make today don’t lay the foundation for a new set of problems over the horizon. Equally, understanding the types of future that might emerge post-crisis can help us plan and prepare for those possibilities as we reshape our current strategies. Finally, such future insights might help us spot, train for, and adapt to the new opportunities, challenges, and risks that could arise as a post-pandemic world unfolds.

In a complex and uncertain world, to sense and respond is critical to managing towards constructive outcomes. In this case, to sense is to have a view of potential impact.
