A global pandemic kicked off the 2020s: A decade still feeling the effects of the 2007-2008 Global Financial Crisis and preceded by years of deep social, environmental and technological change in which inequality increased, extreme political views became more prevalent, climate action took centre stage for the first time and digital technology became ubiquitous.
