The Covid-19 pandemic of 2020 is having a devastating effect worldwide on the status quo.
There is no going back to the world as it was in 2019. That’s not a bad thing. That world was unsustainable. It was looking more and more like a slow motion train wreck. Let’s not go back there, would you agree?
The world that will emerge from this pandemic is completely unknown.
In other words, no person or special interest group can define what the new world will become.
It is up to us to create a new world.
We have a once-in-a-planet opportunity.
There has never in human history been a time so ripe for creating a new world. A world where we the peopleare empowered to define what it will look like.
Sure, there have been other disasters. And we have witnessed how people tend to come together in our shared humanity in the following days.
But there has never been a disaster with such wide-ranging, destructive effects. Nor one where global distribution of a recovery strategy can be as well coordinated. Now, with the predominance of internet and social media, we are empowered to create a world of our own choosing.
