mine around town $10.00 community. for thank you link this is a make or break your hand and. when kids see the bigger picture they will think they think he over they live. in 60 minutes w. . hewer a minute you know a life. well i'd rather not but how will the world look after the pandemic alone welcome to the show i'm seeing beardsley in berlin that was sociologist richard sennett with whom we spoke on monday as part of our week long exercise of imagining life after the pandemic that is the aspects of society or even our daily lives that could be changed for the better we've been asking researchers from around the world for their biggest lessons from the past year and a half here's what we've heard so far. has the pandemic changed how we live will
8:31 pm
social distancing become the new norm the danger in this is you naturalised the extreme. to zoom or even working from home a nice solution full time as a new kid to their. covert winning team showed our society isn't as shock proof as some believed a bitter pill especially for the western world some lessons we can learn obviously one is that it pays to build in a bit of slack in the system will resilience and also we shouldn't spend so much on supplies shades for manufacturing so i think we've learnt that it's worthwhile to have resilience the maximum efficiency what we see is that and most countries also have. take that they have stocks for only a few days you're very much dependent on other countries once before disclose that they're greedy poses
8:32 pm
a problem to. add to stock supermarkets. notice the price of starters for future planning. your learned the lesson that if you spend a dollar in advance to overt a crisis you will save millions of dollars when if the crisis hits the experience of the damage has accession rated the effects of inequalities which many of us think are far too great anyway and i hope we pressure to reduce them. what can the pandemic teach us about climate change. climate change does not however where does pfizer return or just go where they were there not to come over the vaccine or build it you're going to be bought in climate change will be solved i hope the great messages that we have to live in coexistence with major that nature is a huge thing. or researchers there we've heard from over the past week and we're
8:33 pm
not done yet today we're exploring a final question what has the pandemic taught us about sustainable growth earlier i spoke with sunscreen dixon's a clave she's co president of the club of rome that's an organization that for decades has warned about the perils of economic growth at all costs i asked centering if the race to grow economies in the years ahead will come at the costs of sustainability. well i'm hopeful not but i do think that we are starting to see that in some of the every farming recovery plans and the money that was supposed to be allocated to mark green as social initiatives is not necessarily going in the direction that we would hope we are actually in the process and myself involved in a series of different conversations with european member states to try to convince them to definitely allocate that money into programs that will create the resilience that we need to face future crises so i would say that unfortunately short termism within political cycles and also thinking only of an economic reboot
8:34 pm
which is predominately linked to certain industries won't get us to where we need to go to build that recently instead we actually need across europe and across the globe i get the sense from talking to people and personally for myself as well that everyone's looking for a sense of normality when this pandemic is over a core principle that the core founding principle the club of rome has been that growth as normal is not sustainable is this pandemic a chance for politicians to signal a new direction or is that the wrong time to signal that given that the public maybe feels like it's already sacrificed a lot. i think the pandemic is absolutely the right time to demonstrate to people and tap into their consciousness they themselves have lived through this pandemic and understood what is most essential their lives their livelihoods access to food access to clean water access to public spaces where they can actually go in
8:35 pm
feel revitalize nature and forests etc but what we're seeing is that those people that are ready for that shift are not getting the signals actually from their governments you're right the governments are going back to business as usual and you know there is that have taught phrase for the moment that we need to build back better but many of us are indicating 1st of what you can't build back glaciers you can't build back some of the things that we've destroyed for the last 50 years the club of rome has indicated that actually we're not just going to have one crisis it's not just going to be a parent or a climate change crisis it's going to be a series of crises and my deep worry is that short termism within the public sphere is actually not allowing for leaders to seize this opportunity and work with citizens we have seen that actually colbert has transformed communities we should
8:36 pm
be building on that transformation to balance florent differently to grow differently to bring in more equitable well distribution people who actually are ready to ensure and want to be ensuring that they can have access to vaccines access to good health care access to to the most important essential in their lives and even though there's been a bonanza in lying of people buying i do think that if we can't back in fact citizens have said in countless surveys but they are ready to shift their lives to take into consideration already the health plan that may but also a future crisis. you would say the politicians are the ones who are signaling right now that they're ready to push that further along but are they hearing themselves from their citizens are their necks on the line 1st of all is that always the great tension about that short term what people want now whether it's the trip to the maldives for example whether it is the ability to buy whatever they want whenever
8:37 pm
they want versus their long term fears are those that often have both at the same time. again i'm not sure the politicians are listening really to people i think they listen to what they want to listen to they listen to special interests that we do know that corporations have a great deal power and the way in which our politicians think and also look at economic growth i guess all of the surveys that are coming back are indicating that people understand that we're facing a series of different crises and they do want to change change is difficult and it's complex and if we don't have brave leadership that understands the complexity that understand systems approaches in order to actually build the reselling and that we need for future generations then we aren't going to get there so there needs to be an approach taken by leaders and what's interesting is that when we look at those economies they truly have made this shift so for the moment we have 5
8:38 pm
khana means that have actually moved to well being economies that are looking at social economic and environmental indicators together and they're moving beyond that g.d.p. growth scenario those economies are finland iceland wales. abstract scotland. and the zealand air new zealand and all of those economies actually are very much shifting into this area and what's really interesting for me is to see that actually through coal but they're also the economies that manage the pandemic the best because they've started to deal risk the system pendency on only production we have to remember that the huge chains and production has been totally disrupted by kogut and it is those economies and those companies by the way that truly take into consideration what that disruption is going to do that our big 8 becoming much more recently it. sandrine dixon the clave there co president of
8:39 pm
the club of rome i spoke with her earlier and we go down to our science correspondent derek williams who is this week with his own vision for a post kind of a future. if you don't have your health you don't have anything what more can we do to keep as many people as possible as healthy as possible. this week is about visions for a postcode world so i want to talk for a 2nd about a fundamental change in perception that i personally view as as a loan overdue now a minimum standard of health for all is in shrine and in several international agreements including the 948 universal declaration of human rights but over 70 years later this pandemic has once again focused
8:40 pm
a glaring spotlight on how very very far away we still are from actually providing equitable medical care to everyone at the same time it's highlighted that none of us are safe until all of us are protected even those who can't afford it it's in everyone's best interest to provide comprehensive movie care and vaccines to everyone but the 1st question everyone asks is always who's going to pay for it and for me that's the crux of this very fundamental problem health is still way too closely tied to making money we've monetized medicine and and that needs to change don't get me wrong there's no question that a model treating medicine as just another way to pursue. profit that it also helps
8:41 pm
to drive innovation whether it's at a pharmaceutical giant or or a doctor's practice or where at the insurance companies that finance at all but but i personally don't think that we'll ever be able to provide decent health care to all as long as we continue to treat health care as a product something to be bought and sold like a like a car or or a smart phone i believe we've reached a point in human history where high quality universal medical care shouldn't be seen as as a utopian dream but as an achievable goal and who knows maybe the pandemic will help push us in the right direction and this week was about visions so so that's my hope for wish for a post coded future. right
8:42 pm
that's it for our team here at our weeklong look at life after the pandemic we thank you for joining us and we hope to see you again so.
