The 'New Common': how corona is changing the world
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? A New Common, in which everyone with their own talents and expertise can contribute to the development and shaping of our society. 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.
