The world as you'll know it

A Podcast About the World After Covid-19

It’ll be years before we can take stock of the cumulative effects of Covid-19. But right now, amidst the upheaval, loss and confusion, a new future is being etched out in decisions large and small.

In five in-depth conversations, journalists and experts discuss how these decisions might play out to alter the course of climate change, automation, economic policy, higher education and cities in the years to come.

In our first conversation, David Wallace-Wells speaks to Christiana Figueres about the future of Climate Change.

The World as You’ll Know It is brought to you by Aventine, a non-profit research institute committed to creating and sharing work that explores how decisions being made today could change the world around us in the years to come. The views expressed are those of the participants and do not represent those of Aventine, its employees or affiliates.
