After the pandemic: Imagining the future

In the final instalment for 2020, host Kerry O’Brien lead a panel discussion on the human side of the pandemic and how this collective experience might change society.

Our response to coronavirus will shape Australia for decades to come. It has been the catalyst for major change. For many people, their lives at work and at home have been irrevocably altered. Whole industries were severely impacted. Structural weaknesses in our society have been exposed. But we have also re-discovered what we are capable of when we work together. A new appreciation of what we can expect from government, civil society and each other has emerged. We looked ahead and imagined what Australia might look like as we recover from this pandemic.

#A Better Future For All Series

In partnership with Griffith University, HOTA presents a series of critical conversations focusing on unlocking knowledge from influential thinkers and leaders.

Helmed by master broadcaster and journalist Kerry O’Brien, the series will feature intimate conversations with key thought-leaders, and people with a focus on solutions and engagement. At the heart of these conversations is a commitment to understanding the intersection of ideas and actions affecting our daily lives.

These dialogues aim to provide a much-needed forum for robust and unfettered discussion about where we are, and how we are responding to one of this century’s greatest challenges.
