Engineering a Safer Future: Infrastructure

What has the Covid-19 pandemic taught us about the future of infrastructure?

In the Infrastructure session, conducted on 15 September 2020, participants were asked to examine how their work life had changed between January and September 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic; how they have managed to stay resilient, both personally and professionally; and how they intended to prepare for  a ‘new normal’ future.

The session was a moderated conversation framed around infrastructure challenges in a post-Covid world, from small-scale practical issues to long-term institutional and systemic consequences. Participants reflected on how the Covid crisis has disrupted existing practice across critical infrastructure systems and related industries, how systems have adapted, and what lessons the current disruption holds for our shared future.
