After the coronavirus global pandemic, the world will be quite different. In this future-oriented report, the team from Cognizant’s Center for the Future of Work considers what the world will look like in 2023 – a time that’s far enough away for the implications of the virus to have materially changed things but not so far away that pure idle speculation reigns supreme 

The report examines how education, health, shopping and entertainment will become more virtual. How houses will be retrofitted with dedicated home office spaces as working at home becomes the norm, not the exception. It suggests that travel will become a last, not first, resort. It argues that the environmental agenda will gather momentum as we realize the virus is a scream for help from a planet that has added 6 billion people in under 100 years. And it outlines how the virus will force a reckoning of how we treat aging, and how we regard privacy.
