The COVID-19 crisis is having a devastating impact – both in terms of lives lost and economic disruption. At Forum for the Future, we believe that it would be tragic to go back to yesterday’s “business-as-usual”; moments of radical disruption like this provide unprecedented opportunities to reinvent the future. We are therefore calling for business, governments, civil society and communities to seize this moment in helping to deliver a more just, sustainable and resilient world.

This page is a dedicated Forum for the Future content hub for all articles, analysis, tools, insights and systemic approaches related to COVID-19. 


    As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to cause widespread disruption around the world, how are we all responding, what are the implications for creating a sustainable future, and where exactly do we go from here. 

    To find out more about the four emerging trajectories take a look at the new Future of Sustainability report, titled 'From System Shock to System Change - Time to Transform'.


    A blog series in which Forum for the Future’s Founder Director, Jonathon Porritt, and Chief Executive, Dr Sally Uren, each explore different aspects of corporate leadership in addressing the coronavirus crisis.



    The Diary of Discontinuity, from our staff and our partners, examines the day-to-day experience of living in a COVID-19 discontinuity to support others in navigating this moment of massive change. And is intended to give us insight into the personal aspect of living the complexity of a shifting paradigm and help us learn, what it takes, and what it doesn’t, to achieve a more regenerative future. Contributions encouraged at [email protected]  


    We are currently organising a series of events designed to help our partners make sense of the change we are all experiencing, provide them with tools, insights and systemic approaches to help navigate the uncertainty of the status quo and the complexity of the decade ahead, and discover where to act for long-term success in the systems they are operating in.
