Announcing a Special Digital Magazine: “GOOD10: The Pandemic Issue”

Pandemic_Issue_Announcement4

GOOD10: The Pandemic Issue explores big-picture ways that science innovation and communication can usher in a more equitable, more progress-oriented, and safer world.

This issue is a collaboration among GOOD, leapsmag, and the Aspen Institute Science & Society Program.

The GOOD10 format explores fundamental issues facing humanity through the lenses of ten forces pushing the needle toward progress: Places, Philanthropists, Celebrities, Whistleblowers, Companies, Media, Products, Politicians, Scientists, and Actions. Across these categories, we seek to present unexpected and encouraging paradigms emerging from this historic crisis.

This special issue is best viewed on desktop. It is also available as a free downloadable PDF.
