On June 26, 2020, GEP held an emergency session on “The New Normal for the Post-Covid World,” which drew participation from more than 100 people in 20 countries.

Experts from many areas of society including Education, Science & Technology, Peace & Global Affairs, Self-Sufficiency, Natural Resources, Environment, Social Welfare, Finance, Housing, Labour, Health, Culture and Forests. Seven Bills were passed by the House.
Mr. Kadakampally Surendran, the Ministry for Tourism for the State of Kerala, India inaugurated the session.
The Covid-19 pandemic has posed the greatest challenge to the international community since World War II, in terms of health, economy, and international relations. The pandemic has not yet reached its peak globally, and has been predicted to remain a crisis for at least 36 months.
Until the pandemic is resolved for all countries, it will not be resolved for any country; until it is resolve for all people, it is resolved for no one. This is the moment to unite.
The Covid-19 pandemic is causing abrupt changes in almost every sphere of life—from education to transportation, from communications to culture, and from work life to home life—and could plunge half a billion people into poverty. Itis testing and stretching all manmade systems, and those that have resulted or will result in disruptions are demonstrating the inherent imbalance of such system. A world comprised of more than 50% of its systems in a state of imbalance is a world in imbalance.
We are unable to go “back to normal” after Covid because “normal” was unsustainable. It was the so-called “normal” that caused the Covid disaster in the first place.
The world requires new guidelines for global balance, harmonious co-existence, long-term sustainability, and life in tune with nature. Global leadership needs to work in unity, acknowledge what factors have led to imbalances, embrace change courageously, and to set a clear agenda for the “new normal” in a balanced Post-Covid World.
