The coming year will be critical year for reckoning of how we want to shape the new normal: a battle on the vaccine, recovery from the recession, the changing nature of work, and multilateral frameworks are at stake. A progressive and democratic new normal must be pushed to ensure that the world does not fall into worse crises and prevent a slide into authoritarianism and populist rule. This conference aims to consolidate progressive global responses and strategies: How do we solidify alternatives to the crisis as a political community? What are key battles we need to win to deter attempts to return to the status quo? It will highlight experiences and policies that shape impactful response that not only provide immediate solutions but strategic pathways with which we will build a better world than before the crisis.
