Understanding 2020: The Year That Was w/ Lisa Watts (CEO, The Conversation)
About this event:
In a year that included a pandemic, political upheaval, climate emergencies and localised emergencies, we shall also reflect on the future opportunities that lie in wait – of the technological, the scientific, the economic and the societal trends that illustrate what’s next.
The Conversation have just released ‘2020: The Year That Changed Us’, a collection of essays written by Australia and New Zealand’s leading academics on what will be one of the most significant years of our lives.
The authors of the book have used the latest research and evidence to reflect on this year, predict how our lives may be different moving forward, unearth what we may have missed in 2020 amongst the chaos and spotlight some of the best writing from the year.
