In The Hinge Moment: Reforming Institutions To Address Modern Threats

June 7, 2022


Join us on Tuesday, June 7, 2021, 5pm-6pm CEST / 11am-12pm ET for our Virtual Stage! Register below to receive a link to the event.

As we face overlapping global modern threats — pandemics, dis/misinformation, cyber security, and climate change, we are in what David McNair (Executive Director for Global Policy, The ONE Campaign) calls a “hinge moment” to come up with game-changing solutions. Historically, we’ve seen previous hinge moments lead to the establishment of new norms and systems, such as World War I leading to the League of Nations and the Great Depression leading to the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. After more than two years of the COVID-19 pandemic and intersecting crises, we are in a hinge moment to address the critical actions that are needed to ensure a crisis like this pandemic does not happen again.

During this discussion with David McNair, we aim to draw on previous hinge moments to understand where we are today and to address candidly the key actions we must prioritize to reform existing institutions and set up new ones to better address our modern threats.

Pandemic Action Network’s Virtual Stage is a monthly event series that spotlights the latest insights and thought leadership on pandemic preparedness and response. It is a stage for us to examine big picture issues, trends, insights, and perspectives. Questions? Email Hanna.
