Covid-19 has disrupted progress towards many goals, including the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Climate Agreement. According to the World Economic Forum, the need for new ideas and collective action “has rarely been more urgent”. But how will action happen and who is leading the charge on the ‘Great Reset’ the forum’s founder, Klaus Schwab, is advocating for?
