A crisis, actual or perceived produces real change. When that crisis appears like Covid-19, the actions we take depend on the ideas that are around. Lockdown gave us an opportunity to realise what is important. How many of us have reviewed our beliefs and values over Lockdown? During this time we returned to an emphasis on ‘community’.
The world is changing from a competitive market driven ethos (albeit slowly) to a co-operative one. A crisis gives us a ‘knowing’ that we need to build communities based on the common good and that may mean rebuilding values that will sustain humanity and the environment.
