This year's Ideal Village Conference will focus on the theme of: “Post-Pandemic Normal – The Path Forward” featuring panels of experts and leading authorities from international agencies, research institutes, the tech industry, non-profit foundations, and academia to address specific challenges, lessons learnt and viable solutions for the future.  The world may have changed forever, thanks to the ongoing pandemic. An existential threat of such proportions gives us pause to reflect and re-think societal priorities, and perhaps evolve a post-pandemic world that is more equitable, environmentally cleaner, with improved work-life-family-nature balance.
