From social distancing to travel restrictions, the COVID-19 outbreak has had unprecedented impacts on our daily lives. The pandemic has certainly changed, and will continue to leave significant and lasting implications on, the evolving landscapes of public policy, trade relations, economic and social activities.
You are invited to participate in the last episode of the HKUST Global Webinar Series under the theme “Navigating a World of Disruption”, in partnership with National University of Singapore, to learn about the multifaceted impacts of COVID-19 on food security, climate change, air quality, global trade, trends in international migration, remittances and scholarship. Through the academic exchanges, we wish to better understand what are the changes and challenges that we have to face in the post-pandemic era.
