Faced with the consequences of the global pandemic, we have a rare, but narrow, window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine and reset our world. From reimagining cities for greater resilience and sustainability to preparing organizations for new digital business models, innovators across sectors are demonstrating to the world that there are successful alternatives. They are pioneering the changes we need to scale up and adopt across industries and markets if we want to transform our world for the better.

The World Economic Forum’s inaugural Pioneers of Change Summit will convene innovative leaders and entrepreneurs from around the world to showcase their solutions, build meaningful connections and inspire change across the Forum’s diverse multistakeholder communities.

To coincide with the meeting, from November 16 to November 20, the Forum invited participants to share their ideas on sparking positive change as the world recovers from COVID-19.

What is the biggest opportunity you see for positive change in the post-pandemic world? And what is your best piece of advice for how to make change happen?

‘Universal Basic Housing for all’

Fanyu Lin, CEO, Fluxus

The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance for everyone to be able to have a place to call home – it is a human right. As we see the new normal unfold, accelerating digital transformation is a strategic priority to transform many legacy industries including construction and infrastructure. We are presented with the opportunity to advance global housing solutions through smarter methods of construction, where measurable ESG metrics are woven into the value chain for creating new homes. Turning housing into a driver for social, economic and environmental sustainability in the Great Reset should be our global goal.

My number one piece of advice is to collaborate. We now have the technological foundations and tools to support transformational change in the way we create value for all stakeholders. We should incorporate wisdom from urban planning, public governance and justice. We need to leverage networks of global partners and innovations in advanced building materials, smart city and connected building technologies, next-generation networks, industrialization and the automation of construction. Together, we can bring the dream of Universal Basic Housing to fruition in the most sustainable way, in alignment with the planet – our shared home.
