Good things happen when you narrow your focus
Welcome to Conference


Scientific and technological advances in recent decades have greatly improved our capacity to predict and protect ourselves from many natural and manmade disasters. However, the Covid-19 pandemic illustrates that we still remain vulnerable both to natural elements and to unpredictability created through humanity’s hubris. This dimension seeks to address ways to create a safer future for all.

1. Are we ready to embrace a brave new digital authoritarian world post-COVID?

2. How do we approach the task of raising our children during a global pandemic which may last another 12-18 months? What risks and opportunities does a digital future present for our children and us?

3. How can we harness technology to predict a safer world?

4. What steps can global adversaries and superpowers take to work together during the COVID-19 pandemic?

5. If COVID-19 cannot be entirely eliminated from the world, or future pandemics averted with certainty, how can international agencies, sovereign nations, private enterprises and ordinary citizens work together to create a safer world?
