Renaissance after the Pandemic

“The Hope Pandemic” series addresses the changing business climate and how we can go digital and shape a new world of sustainability, kindness and community.

Looking back at history, we see that out of the crises of the Middle Ages (including the black death plague) the golden period known as the Renaissance emerged.

It mobilized some of the world’s known thinkers, authors, statesmen, artists scientists and artists, and ushered an exciting period in Europe in art, architecture, culture, economics etc.

The Renaissance spread across the lands, bridging the gap between the Middle Ages and the modern-day civilization that we know today.

As we all ponder the pandemic and the unsettling unknown before us, can we also think proactively about “Renaissance 2.0” that our world is in dire need of?

Can this period spur our eco-architects, urban planners, artists, entrepreneurs, innovators, teachers and policymakers to synthesize a rebirth of a stronger, more vibrant world with…

– more responsible consumption of resources

– a more circular economy

– new models for inclusive compassionate communities

– more dynamic experiences and enjoyment of the arts, nature etc

-more opportunities for small businesses to flourish alongside big business


I hope we can see this period as an incredible opportunity to fix all our broken pieces and launch a bold nextgen world.
