Theme 2021: Learning Resilience

In a world changed forever by a global pandemic, no single word is more important than 'resilience.' It is the secret to overcoming the past, the key to the future. But what do we mean by it? How can we become resilient? Should we learn resilience? Can it be taught? How should we invest in resilience? And how can we make learning itself resilient?
