How will the COVID-19 crisis reshape the ways we live and work?
The COVID-19 pandemic is having an enormous impact on the world and has introduced new norms to how we work, educate, and live in a very short period of time. Experts predict that pandemics and climate change will continue to disrupt our lives in the future. This pandemic illustrates that we can no longer ignore urban, environmental, social equity issues but should instead use them as an opportunity to look ahead, to reconceptualize and reorganize ourselves, and to develop strategies that anticipate change, favor resiliency, and are built through interdisciplinarity.
FutureLab Innovation Fellows will define specific problem areas, conduct iterative research in teams, and ultimately produce design solutions, strategic plans, websites, apps, business plans, and the like in order to address current and ongoing issues in our world. As the Operations Coop, you will be assisting in coordinating interactions with professionals from various industries, communities, and government organizations in the greater Boston ecosystem while keeping our FutureLab Innovation Fellows on track to creating real world solutions!
