2020 bratislava forum
towards resilience and recovery
“Let’s Heal The World Together” invites the international community to consider the most pressing issues that need to be resolved in order to quickly recover from the Great Lockdown and to build safer, more prosperous and resilient societies.
While our recovery has already begun, there is much work to be done. Fissures must be healed, and crises resolved. The pandemic is just one of a myriad of challenges that we face. Our world is one of constant upheaval and disruption — from the climate crisis to emergent technologies, economic insecurity to new geopolitical confrontations. The future has never seemed so insecure.
we need to build the post-COVID world
International stakeholders must come together to lay the foundations for a safer, more prosperous, and resilient world, while recovering from a pandemic that will leave lasting economic and social wounds. ‘Let’s Heal The World Together’ reflects the conviction that the international community can find common cause in resolving these overlapping crises and set to work on building a more resilient future. The discussions will focus on the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on multiple sectors of societies and governance and will be framed by six topical streams: Future of Europe, Defence and Security, Economy and Global Order, Digital Future, Sustainability and Democracy & Resilience.
