Good Society Forum: Campaigning for election in a post-COVID world
May 20, 2020 @ 1:00 pm
The coronavirus will change the way we live. The pandemic will definitely affect how we view the role of the State, the market as an efficient channel for prosperity, and even democracy as a political system in times of crisis. It has caused the greatest emotional shock since the Great Depression: the realization of our true vulnerability as humans. In democratic societies, that sentiment will play out in elections, bringing opportunities as well as major threats. Developing a political agenda - and campaigning for election - will be a changed, complex and challenging endeavor. The Good Society Forum brings together three leaders from Peru, Ukraine and the United States. Please join us for a webinar panel hosted by Emma Sky (Director, Yale World Fellows) and Nizam Uddin (Senior Head of Mosaic and Community Integration, The Prince’s Trust, and 2019 Yale World Fellow). Register via Zoom at: https://yale.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_aGYXac2STm2DzeckqUs18g Our panelists are: Julio Guzman: 2021 Presidential candidate in Peru, leader and founder of the Partido Morado (The Purple Party), a centrist-political national party (2018 World Fellow) Olena Sotnyk: Ukrainian politician, lawyer, and human rights defender (2019 World Fellow) Jake Sullivan: former national security adviser to US Vice President Joe Biden and director of policy planning, U.S. Department of State; as well as deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The Good Society Forum is a community of change-makers around the world with a common quest to build the good society. Launched in April 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Good Society Forum Webinars digitally connect change makers around the world, engage them on ideas, and inspire action to build the good society.
