We are living in unprecedented times. We all know that the current pandemic will have an impact on entire societies and economies on an unparalleled scale. How this will unfold remains uncertain, but one thing we know for sure: normal is over. We’ve brought together filmmaker, Renée Scheltema, and the economist, Kate Raworth, to discuss this period of transition.
The New Normal Foundation and Impact Hub Amsterdam invite you to the virtual screening of the award-winning documentary, ‘Normal is over‘. Simultaneously screening in 10 different countries, the live stream will be followed by an unmissable Q&A with the filmmaker, Renée Scheltema, and the renegade economist, Kate Raworth. Creator of the internationally acclaimed framework, Doughnut Economics, Kate focuses on developing the economic mindset needed to address the social and ecological challenges facing our planetary household in the twenty-first century.
