In this sense, this webinar was no exception. The main focus of the discussion was the possible scenarios of the post-pandemic world and their humanitarian, cultural, civilizational and geopolitical consequences. After the speeches of the speakers, questions were raised, a discussion was held, opinions and thoughts were exchanged. I thank the organizers for holding such a discussion and for inviting me. Of course, the participation in the webinar was very useful and a very good opportunity to communicate with the discussions taking place in the world”; our colleague stated.
