Breaking habits is hard but with this months long, enforced lockdown and a broken economy we will all find ourselves moving towards some changes in our lifestyles and in our social and political structures. A few that come to my mind are :
Reducing the stress on over populated cities
Building outlying satellite towns and making them autonomous and independent
Flattening hierarchies, helping rebuild smaller businesses
Adoption of a global digital currency
Kick starting our agra and farming on a priority basis
Investing in health care
Digital transformation will pick up pace. Simplifying tasks so they can be attributed to tech and robotics and thus free up time to innovate and create a new world order.
Appreciating and acknowledging the co-dependence between man and nature. Nurturing our planet and the environment
Decluttering and prioritising things that matter
Collaborations and task teams will take precedence over monopolistic leaders and organisations.
Most importantly, we will see global citizens rise in a wave against the existing inequities and work towards building a common future.
