Webinar Series: The World Has Changed
Webinar Topic: The future of restarting the Economy lies with us and not the Government
About the webinar:
The COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant lockdown has hit the global population like no other crisis. After nearly 6 months of lockdown and restrictions, we have to realise that each one of us has a role in overcoming this pandemic and restarting economy.
The webinar will explore the need for using technology as a tool to self organise and will delve deeper on the importance of engaging citizens in a quest for the common good of public health and enforcing trust at all levels.
