Equality Talks: Part 2 – New frontiers

The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted almost every aspect of life as we knew it. Existing structural inequalities were highlighted, and often exacerbated, while ‘COVID-normal’ is asking us to take radically different approaches to the ways we live and work. What can we learn from the crisis phase of the pandemic? And can we use those lessons to craft a vision for ‘life after’ that is more equal, sustainable and resilient than ‘life before?’.

About this event

New frontiers was delivered on 8 December as part of Human Rights Week 2020. The webinar brought together six diverse leaders and thinkers to present short talks on their take on new and emerging human rights issues and how we should respond.
