Time & Location
About the Event
About the session:
Covid-19 has changed the way we live in a very broad sense, but in a more subtle way as well. When you think about how your individual behaviours and actions have evolved over the past three months, you’ll be surprised to see how much has changed. Dr. Marcus Ranney believes that Covid-19 will create a new anthropological group of individuals which he has termed ‘Gen C’.
Key characteristics of this generation will include a shared loss of confidence, a more virtual future, enhanced capacity for self-generation and self-care along with a focus on community building and collaboration. Moving from the ‘new normal’ to the ‘next normal’ is not easy to predict, but with Marcus’ keen insights, you might be able to adapt yourself to these macro level changes.
Marcus will be in conversation with Marlies Bloemendaal, Founder of Ministry of New.
