Sciana hosts webinar on creating a new and better normal

Sciana members and foundation staff to meet online for the last webinar in present series

Sciana members and foundation staff will virtually convene tomorrow evening to discuss leadership and looking forward.

On June 23, participants will focus on how to create a new and better normal in a one-and-a-half-hour discussion held under the Chatham House Rule.

Ilona Kickbusch, chair of the Sciana Network, will moderate the discussion. Speakers include Jennifer Dixon, chief executive of the Health Foundation, and Sciana Senior Ambassadors Thomas Zeltner and Edelgard Bulmahn.

The webinar will mark Bulmahn’s first appearance as an ambassador since accepting the position. Bulmahn was formerly Federal Minister for Education and Research in Germany and a vice-president of the Bundestag.

During the webinar, participants will consider the following questions:

  • What should the new (and better) normal be?
  • Can we act for both today and tomorrow?
  • Can what have seemed insurmountable challenges now be addressed in our respective countries?
  • Has something changed? Is there cause for optimism or not?
  • What are the key leadership messages we can draw from what has happened, thinking of what is to come?

The webinar is the fourth and final virtual convening in the current series. Previous discussions have focused on initial responses to COVID-19, mental health and resilience, and data modelling.
