Our Changing World

Video: Our Changing World Introduction
An introduction to our 2020 project.

This year's theme is ‘Pandemic: A Changed World?’

We can all see and experience the changes in our world as it has responded and continues to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic. But what happens next? Indeed, what should happen next? The course offers students the opportunity to debate and discuss this issue and think about the challenges we will all confront as we enter a “new normal”. Challenges, yes. But also opportunities - opportunities to set a new agenda. To adjust our focus. To press the Reset button.
