Aftershocks and Opportunities – Scenarios for a Post-Pandemic Future
While the world grapples with the current unfolding crisis, 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. This 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 that could arise as a post-pandemic world unfolds.

This series of webinars, moderated by global futurist Rohit Talwar of Fast Future, is designed to provide a widespread global exploration of key aspects of the post-pandemic future: from the impacts on humanity, the economy, and globalisation through to health, education, and the environment.  

April 9th 2pm-3.15pm BST (GMT+1)
Global Perspectives on the World After COVID-19
In this opening seminar, futurists and scenario thinkers from around the globe will highlight possible scenarios of how things could evolve over the next two to five years and explore the possible regional differences in both the potential impacts and opportunities that could emerge. Key topics to be explored will include:

  • The Economy – How might the global economy and regional markets be reshaped?
  • The Operating Environment – Are we looking at a complete reboot of the system or more gradual change?
  • Consequences – Who might the biggest beneficiaries and victims be?
  • Society – How might values and behaviours evolve?
  • Action – What should leaders, politicians, and individuals be doing now to prepare themselves for such an uncertain future?

  • The world has an unprecedented opportunity to correct many fundamental discontinuities and imbalances, and reshape our common and shared future as a result of this profound existential threat to humanity. Will we rise to the occasion and change the narrative or not?

  • The world is going to change as much as it did after the 1919 Spanish Flu Pandemic? In 1919 50 million died. More than in WWI.
    We know how the world changed after WWI. How did the world change due to the pandemic?
