Fixing the Future: Stan Grant, Bruce Pascoe and Thomas Piketty join the Q+A panel

With the world in lockdown and the showdown with China accelerating, the West must now adapt to a world it no longer dominates.

Our current political, justice and economic systems are unable to resolve the current global crises, nor bridge the growing divides of wealth, gender and race.

COVID is giving us a chance to reset, but already we’re seeing a toxic form of vaccine nationalism take hold, in which unequal access to vaccines is leaving some countries out in the cold. So how do we design a more equal world?

We’re at a turning point now – how do we proceed?
