Restarting 21st century

Recent rapid societal changes are taking place globally that affect all aspects of people’s lives due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Rapid societal changes are changes in human interactions and relationships that transform cultural and social institutions. Recently such changes can occur over a short period of time and often have profound and long-term consequences for society. Well-known examples of such change have resulted from social movements in civil rights, women’s rights, and minority rights, to name just a few. Relationships have changed, institutions have changed, and cultural norms have changed as a result of these social change movements.
