The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed deep problems in our institutions, governments, systems for innovation, commerce and technology infrastructure. It’s changing our behaviour, economy and society as we work, educate and shop online like never before. And it’s affecting our attitudes towards everything from cleanliness and personal safety to our views on systemic racism and the role of governments and global institutions in society.
How will the pandemic change Canada, our institutions and — ultimately — us? Hear from Don Tapscott, ’78 MEd, ’01 LLD(Honorary), one of the world’s leading thinkers about the digital age and the future of society, who believes that the future is not just something to be predicted but something to be achieved. Learn about seven historic opportunities and challenges facing Canada and what Tapscott proposes may be fresh new directions for the future.
