Starting on June 25, the Public Diplomacy Council of Catalonia (Diplocat) will host a series of online debates in English on the post-Covid world "from a decentralizing perspective."

Under the title "Diplocat Digital Talks - The world after the Covid-19," the sessions are aimed at international audiences and will assess the role of sub-state entities as well as of sustainability.

The first of these talks, "The global and European role of sub-state entities in building future post-COVID-19 scenarios," will be co-organized with the Catalan government's Center for Contemporary Studies and moderated by political scientist Marc Sanjaume.

Others, such as "Leaving business as usual aside: sustainability at the center of COVID-19 economic recovery" on June 29, will focus on environmental and financial issues that should be considered in relation to the public health crisis.

Diplocat hopes to "share knowledge and exchange good practices between sub-state entities on the strategies to be followed in the immediate future" with these hour-long talks, which will be available on their website.
