‘The day after will be…’: new collaborative platform to learn from the COVID-19 crisis


News from ISGlobal


What will the day after the Covid-19 emergency be like? The Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) together with a group of organisations committed to achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), has created the Spanish initiative "The Day After Will Be..." (El Día Después Será), a platform to foster dialogue about what can be learned from the crisis in the key areas of sustainable development.

Measures to curb the pandemic are causing rapid and profound changes in our society and economy. The new platform will analyse the situation we are all experiencing at the national and global levels, and will promote substantial changes that will begin the day after this crisis has ended.

Thus, the initiative will promote conversations – initially virtual – between researchers from different disciplines, political decision-makers, civil society organisations, companies and citizens to identify the changes that are already taking place and that could help accelerate progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
