Building peace in the minds of men and women

A Whole New World, Reimagined by Women

More egalitarian? More respectful of the planet? Dominated by new technologies? The world that emerges from the health crisis will bear the scars of this unprecedented collective experience – the near-universal lockdown imposed to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. But will it really be different? And if so, in what way? Much has already been said on the subject.  For months, specialists across the globe have held forth in the media, providing a wide range of opinions. What they have had in common, for the most part, is that they are men. 

The UNESCO Courier asked women across the globe to imagine what life will be like after the crisis. Journalists, authors, intellectuals, museum directors, scientists give voice to their thoughts – to reimagine a whole new world.
