The Pandemic Issue

     Published in June 2020, The Pandemic Issue investigates big-picture ways that science innovation and communication can usher in a more equitable, more progress-oriented, and safer world.
     The magazine 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.
     The magazine is a collaboration among the Aspen Institute Science & Society Programthe science outlet leapsmag, and the impact and engagement company GOOD. Publication of this magazine accompanies the public, virtual Pandemic Science Summit on June 17.
