Conferences and panels

Society after Corona‘, Melbourne PC User Group monthly meeting, 6/4/20

We will be exploring the way in which society may change permanently as a result of the pandemic. Will working from home become the new normal? How will our value systems change? Could it be the beginning of the end for some traditional political and economic systems? Will we become a more caring society? Will there be deep and profound socioeconomic changes, or will we revert inexorably back to business as usual?
