COVID-19, a pandemic no one could have predicted.
Due to the invasion of the virus, individuals' health and security have been affected, our social system has been threatened, and our economy has swiveled depending on the spread of the virus.
However, the pandemic hasn't ended just yet. Experts predict that a new pandemic can break out any time even after COVID-19. Now the world must prepare for a world beyond the shock cast upon by COVID-19--an era of the "New Normal." How are the three experts leading the evolution of our world foreseeing the upcoming era of the "New Normal"?
In our first episode, we introduce the perspective of Dr. Sam Richards, a sociologist at Pennsylvania State University and the speaker for the third most viewed lecture on TED (as of 2011).
What is the New Normal era foreseen by Sam Richards, a professor who has shocked the world with his refreshing and groundbreaking perspectives?How will our society, stained with hate and exclusion, change in the future?
We aim to predict how members of our society, still stalling from the shock of COVID-19, must prepare in response to the era of the New-Normal.
