About The Conference

The conference topic anticipates humanity's future after the COVID-19 epidemic. It investigates the role of all human services in making the world a better place. This conference relies on intrinsic abilities that people use in their rehabilitation as they rebuild hope from shattered pieces. The conference allows for creative and innovative thinking, as well as the exploration of out-of-the-box solutions for a lively, resilient, and hopeful future. The Conference will focus on three simple questions:

(1) What worked for us prior to the pandemic?
(2) Where have we fallen short? And
(3) what appears to be a pathway now and for the future?

The conference discussions should, hopefully, centre on the fundamental alterations required for social change engagement and goals. Crisis-induced collaborative creativity, innovation, and transformation that we have all seen provides great narratives. COVID-19 has surprised everyone. It has devastated global health, society, and economy. Most countries enforced face masks, social distancing, and border closures. An opportunity therefore for us to undertake an -depth review of the pandemic response: Specifically, in all our societies what worked? What is that we need to improve? Or invent? Information technology, privacy, ethics, robots, Artificial intelligence (AI) Population, habitat, and migration need more work. The pandemic impacted on educational system, resulting in increased use of technology in schools, colleges and universities moving to online and hybrid models.
