In 2020, the rapid global impacts of Covid-19 and its consequences across every aspect of the work that Lloyd’s Register Foundation supports, provided a unique opportunity for us all to consider the transformations we’d like to see as we emerge from this crisis.
Lloyd's Register Foundation and the Resilience Shift have developed 'Engineering A Safer Future', a series of conversations as an antidote to the pervasive online 'noise' that confronts us as we seek serious discussion and meaningful insight into the impact of Covid-19.
We sought to bring together innovators working within the Lloyd’s Register Foundation grant programme, joined by outside subject matter specialists, with the aim of surfacing insights on the likely scale and permanence of the changes that Covid-19 has triggered.
With the five sessions respectively focussed on safety at work, data and information systems, education, infrastructure and public understanding of risk, this series explores both the impact of disruption and how disruption can create windows of opportunity for change.
“Lloyd’s Register Foundation’s mission as a global charity is to identify global safety challenges, seek out willing collaborators who share our strong social purpose and then build coalitions that deliver long term impact for people and property across the planet.
‘Learning from Crisis: Engineering a Safer Future’ is a series that embodies this charitable purpose – collaborating with one of our long-standing partners, The Resilience Shift, to bring together thought leaders and experts from our grants community and beyond to openly reflect on the lessons learnt from the disruption of COVID-19.
I’d like to extend my thanks to all the contributors. We hope that the insights from the roundtable sessions can strengthen our understanding of how we can build resilience and preparedness to global safety challenges.”
