The 'New Common'
The corona crisis has compounded major social challenges in such fields as health and security, the environment, education, the job market, and digitalization. How can we, together, create a 'New Common' that is better for people, society, and planet?

Based on academic knowledge, Tilburg University offers a dynamic perspective in this context. And we will enter into a dialog, because the best way forward is together.
