Key takeaways

The Covid-19 pandemic brought about four "awakenings":

1. A sudden, collective launch into relying on technology for work, well-being, and social continuity.

2. A clear view of how our consumptive behavior influences planetary health.

3. A tangible awareness of, and compassion for, current economic, social and racial inequities.

4. A deeper understanding of ourselves, our capacities, and our support networks.

The result is an opportunity to shift from measuring only productivity and consumption, to a more holistic approach that factors in wellbeing.
