COVID-19 has deeply affected global health, the economy and most aspects of societies. The rapid rollout of emergency measures should not compromise continued attention to integrity, accountability and transparency in policy making as well as efforts to preserve and strengthen public trust as governments strive to respond to the crisis and “build back better”. Furthermore, not everybody in society is equal in the face of the pandemic. Young people in particular are facing increased risks to their education and prospects for employment, and are shouldering the long-term social and economic consequences of the pandemic. Through a dialogue with young leaders from government, business and civil society, this opening session will identify concrete actions and forge new pathways for the post-COVID future, as we look to rebuilding an ethical and fair society.
