UNESCO launches a series of online forums entitled “Imagining the world to come”

UNESCO is calling on inspiring voices from across the globe to take part in a series of online discussions to help us imagine the world taking shape as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. The series will kick off in May with a unique event featuring leading women experts and thinkers.

The COVID-19 crisis has had a major impact on societies, challenging what we thought were fundamental truths. Given that the pandemic is ongoing, and no one knows how it will end, it is all the more urgent that we take time to think. Indeed, these events have revealed the world in a new light, underlining the need for us to reflect on the future. That is what UNESCO, as a laboratory of ideas, intends to do. This week, UNESCO, is launching a series of online forums entitled “Imagining the world to come” to give voice to all those who will kick-start our reflections. The first forum features women, whose views have not been sufficiently heard during this crisis.

New contributions from women and men working in a wide range of disciplines around the world will be added to the platform in the coming weeks and months. These forums will inform UNESCO’s strategic reflections – making sure that tomorrow’s programmes meet the needs of our changing world. UNESCO also hopes that the series will inspire national policy-makers and make a positive contribution to global governance.

All contributions, however diverse, are welcome! Do not hesitate to support the promotion of this online forum by visiting the dedicated website and sharing it on your social networks.

In the face of Covid-19, UNESCO leads the reflection on

what the future should look like.
