Tohoku Forum Creativity Online Lectures and Discussion The Role of International Collaboration and Culture regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic

Although the initial wave of COVID-19 infections has subsided in many parts of the world, experts say it is unlikely that the infection rate will ever reach zero. In fact, countries that appear to be doing well now, could still be hit with a second or third wave.
After the presentations of three speakers, the panel will compare measures taken in different countries and suggest reasons some regions are doing better than others. It will also look at why the World Health Organization has been unable to unite the world in tackling COVID-19, and what that means if there’s another, even deadlier, virus in the near future.
This discussion will help deliver new insight into how international cooperation and culture can contribute to peace and welfare during and after the COVID-19 Pandemic.
