In times of disruption and crisis, it can be hard to look to the long-term, especially where events are still unfolding, or a particular event or decision might rewrite the future landscape. Lessons can be learned from Brexit, Covid-19 and other crises: including how to think in multiple horizons and the value of listening to the diverse perspectives of the next generation.
