As COVID-19 affects every aspect of our lives across the world, what does the future hold? What changes will this experience bring to the way we work, study and play, the way we organise our cities and our economies, the way we use technology and our relationship with the natural world.

We will host a series of events to look at the varied impacts of the virus and explore how we can ensure that the world learns the right lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic, and that we seize the opportunities that it does present to build back better.
