While the end of the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic is not yet in sight, there is growing focus on the ways and means to build back better, by resetting the way we produce, consume, socialise and interact. What are the possibilities of tomorrow, and how can countries leverage them to reset their economies in the post-COVID world?
The Future Possibilities Report 2020, which was released in partnership with the UN75 initiative, sets out to answer that question by identifying six transformational trends that are creating possibilities, and the factors that explain a country’s capacity to take advantage of those possibilities for the benefit of society. Senior researcher Hugo Hollanders played an advisory role in the creation of the report, which is embedded below.
