Business Fights Poverty




In this interactive session, Caroline Ashley, Forum for the Future’s Global Programmes Director, drew on Forum’s latest analysis in its Future of Sustainability report to explore four competing mindsets emerging from the pandemic – Transform, Compete and Retreat, Unsettled and Discipline; what each means for our ability to really build back differently; what ideas, innovations and signals of change we’re already seeing; and what may lie ahead in 2021.

The widespread adoption of safe and effective vaccines against COVID-19 is the surest pathway towards recovery and rebuilding better. How can we build vaccine literacy and trust, and ensure fair access? In the meantime, how do we extend the availability of PPE and other preventative measures, especially for those who are most vulnerable? Looking ahead, how can we ensure health systems are better positioned to cope, including through greater access to self-care? In this webinar, we unpacked these questions and explored the role of business as a partner to governments and civil society.
