World After Covid

If you were to predict the most significant negative societal outcomes of the pandemic, what would it be? How about positive consequences? Throughout summer-fall 2020, WICI Core Member Igor Grossmann asked world’s leading behavioral and social scientists to share their thoughts on what effects the COVID-19 pandemic will have on our societies, to shed light on the possible long-term impact of the pandemic; not only challenges but also opportunities to better the human condition in the world after Covid. They were also asked to share their advice regarding the wisdom people will need right now to make it through the crisis, and to create a better world thereafter.

On Igor's interactive web portal, you can see interviews with 50+ experts from 10 different countries – a time-capsule of scientists’ perspectives on the world after Covid, classified by common themes across the interviews. Or check out the interactive visualizations of results!
