The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to light many realities that had always been at the core of our societies, but were never accepted as such.

Available data indicates that the health and economic impacts of the pandemic are being borne disproportionately by poor people. For instance, homeless people, because they may be unable to safely shelter in place, are highly exposed to the danger of the virus. People without access to running water, refugees, migrants, or displaced persons also stand to suffer disproportionately both from the pandemic and its aftermath – whether due to limited movement, fewer employment opportunities, increased xenophobia, etc. 

For many decades, pretty much everyone knew that our societies were headed towards a catastrophe. 

If not properly addressed, the social and financial crisis created by the COVID-19 pandemic will increase inequalities, exclusion, discrimination and global unemployment in the medium and long term. 

The world is out of shape. It’s a walking dead giant. It needs to be fixed. It needs to be CURED.

Introducing, the Cure: better than tomorrow!, the main theme of the 2021 Paris Talks virtual ideas festival taking place on the 26th of March 2021.

We live in a world that’s sick and it needs a cure for:

  • the ongoing coronavirus and its ever-evolving variants

  • the very complex scientific and policy issues to address many other diseases like cancer

  • the ongoing job crisis and its near-future consequences

  • cyber-activities nations and/or businesses entities are throwing at each other, causing unmeasurable casualties

  • food insecurity caused by climate change and other geopolitical factors

  • the lack of access to formal education

  • hate speech and other threats to our democratic systems

  • all sorts of inequalities linked to gender, religious belief, race, education, place of birth or residence.

  • the loss and undermining of cultural heritages but also of the biodiversity

The world is in bad shape and needs a cure. 

We can’t afford waiting another day to address these issues. Today is far better than tomorrow.

The 2021 Paris Talks virtual ideas festival will be the place where ideas to cure ourselves, and the world we inhabit, will be discussed.
