The COVID-19 pandemic, and the way we’ve responded, has affected lives, livelihoods, communities and businesses around the world. It’s been a crisis of uncertainty, insecurity and many unanswered questions. But also one of solidarity, disruption, opportunity and the chance to reflect on what matters most. Especially social interactions with family, friends and colleagues have become a lot more valuable. As we emerge from the acute phase of this unprecedented crisis, our journey towards a new normal begins. How we deal with the situation will determine the direction it takes. Regular, honest and open dialog needs to be our key companion on this journey. By sharing various perspectives, ideas, realities and lessons learned, we can guide each other.

Not the new normal itself will define who we are, but how we react to it.
