The COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare economic and social fractures that were there before. Inequality isn’t simply about how much stuff you have, or how nice it is. It’s about life and death.
But there will be an after. What happens #afterthis?
We’re all coping with now, and it isn’t easy. But it’s also a time to think about the future. Here’s something new from NCRC to encourage hope, creativity and a Just Economy:
#AfterThis is an online festival of ideas and art. It’s a way to inspire thinking and spark conversations about the future, especially with friends, family and a wider network of people who may not respond to other things we do. As the name implies, it’s about what happens after we get through the coronavirus catastrophe. What should a Just Economy look like then?
What does a Just Economy mean to you?
Post your answers in social media. That’s also where you should invite friends and family to join and post theirs. Make sure you use these tags: #justeconomy #afterthis
