Rapid Foresight survey

COVID-19 Crisis: Where do we go from here?

The COVID-19 health crisis is causing unprecedented disruptions to our daily lives, transforming social, economic, and governance systems around the world. While challenging, this moment also provides an opportunity to collectively reflect on and reimagine our future. Sustainability in the Digital Age, an initiative of Future Earth, and the Grantham Institute for Climate Change and Environment, are launching a rapid foresight survey to take the pulse of the global population at this unique moment to help inform and shape recovery strategies when we begin to rebuild.

With this survey, we want to explore: 

  • What are the biggest opportunities for transformative change towards a more resilient, sustainable, and equitable world?
  • How might the economy, society, and governance systems evolve? 
  • How can we most effectively leverage the digital sector to navigate the current crisis and rebuild society while also managing potential threats to privacy, equity, and democratic rule?

The Survey is now closed.

Thank you to everyone who participated and contributed to the conversation COVID19: Where do we go from here?
