What can the pandemic teach us about the way we react to and normalise global emergencies? David Wallace-Wells is a journalist and author of 'The Uninhabitable Earth'.
Global crises cause big changes and reveal deep structural weaknesses. As drastic measures are taken across the world to stop the spread of COVID-19, what are the short, medium and long term implications for our society, our economy, geopolitics - and us as individuals?
In this special interview series from the RSA, its chief executive, Matthew Taylor, talks to a range of practitioners - from scholars to business leaders, politicians to journalists - to assess the scale of the response and consider how we build effective bridges to our new future.
David Wallace-Wells is deputy editor and climate columnist for New York magazine. He's the author of The Uninhabitable Earth: A Story of the Future.
