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 available as an e-reader version for both desktop and mobile. It is also available as a free downloadable PDF.
