The University of Strathclyde along with some of our key global strategic partners is hosting a series of multidisciplinary webinars entitled Thriving after Massive Global Disruption. The series will share our experiences from across the globe as we come to better understand the implications and impact of COVID-19 and to help make sense of how a post Covid-19 world might be shaped to be more inclusive, socially progressive and economically successful.
The series will examine how, in this time of huge disruption, we can identify the opportunities that will emerge and how we can use the Sustainable Development Goals as a framework for the ‘new normal’.
Students who register from participating Universities and achieve a minimum 75% attendance of the webinars (from webinar 2 onwards) will be awarded a ‘Certificate of Attendance’ for the series.
To enhance inclusivity we will make the session available in recorded format online after the event. This aims to help with time zone problems or where you are unable to attend live for personal, professional or family reasons.
Our introductory Webinar, hosted by Prof Jeremy Bauer, ran on 12th May – a small sample of the enormously positive reviews are given below:
‘Thank you so much! Fascinating insights in these difficult times’,
‘Thanks so much- fantastic insights and takeaway’,
‘Thank you for your quality time and presentation!’
