The COVID-19 crisis has had a major impact on societies, challenging what we thought were fundamental truths. Given that the pandemic is ongoing, and no one knows how it will end, it is all the more urgent that we take time to think. Indeed, these events have revealed the world in a new light, underlining the need for us to reflect on the future. That is what UNESCO, as a laboratory of ideas, intends to do.
This week, UNESCO, is launching a series of online forums entitled “Imagining the world to come” to give voice to all those who will kick-start our reflections. The first forum features women, whose views have not been sufficiently heard during this crisis.
