The discussion aims to explore the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on our local communities as the issue has increasingly become one of the greatest challenges our communities have ever faced in recent times. Participants joining from different parts of the world will share their experience with local communities in responding to the pandemic as well as provide their own perspectives on the outbreak. No doubt, the pandemic has once again helped us to show the high level of interdependence that connects people all over the world, the degree of cooperation and solidarity needed at every level. With this in mind, the discussion is seeking to find a common ground where we can work together as a whole to overcome similar challenges in the future. The Covid-19 presents us with vital lessons in this respect.
