FP Virtual Dialogue:
Global Lessons for a More Resilient Future

Join Foreign Policy magazine and the Global Futures Laboratory at ASU as we explore the surprising links between coronavirus, climate change, and inclusive governance.

COVID-19 has prompted a watershed moment in global governance, offering key lessons on the complex challenges facing our world. Beyond its health impact, the sociopolitical and economic fallout from the pandemic demonstrates how inequities along gender, social, and racial divides weaken humanity’s collective resilience and ability to tackle future crises. Especially with regard to climate change, the coronavirus serves as a poignant reminder of our interconnectedness on this planet, the exponential nature of the threats we face -- and the danger of ignoring them.

As the global community will be pressed to develop more equitable and sustainable solutions to recover from this crisis, what lessons are we learning to ready us for bigger threats ahead? How can leaders at the global, national and community levels advance more inclusive governance to mobilize transformation in politics and business?

Join us for a panel of leading global thinkers -- including former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark and the Director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, Johan Rockström, to answer those and other questions.
