The Centre for Optimism loves Andrew Wear  and his optimism, passion and wisdom.  Andrew's His first book, Solved! How other countries have cracked the world’s biggest problems and we can too was a beauty.  Andrew joined us for an interview:

Andrew's new book launched this month is Recovery: How We can Create  a Better, Brighter Future after a Crisis.  

Humanity has recovered from many crises in the past: war, depression, pandemic, natural disaster. Often, we’ve bounced back to create a better future. The Spanish flu was followed by the economic prosperity of the Roaring Twenties. After World War II, the German economy grew to become the world’s most advanced. US social and economic policies responding to the Great Depression paved the way for twentieth-century prosperity.

As we emerge from the COVID-19 health and economic crisis, what can we learn from other recoveries? Through interviews with experts, policymakers and community leaders, Andrew examines past recoveries, exploring what went well, what we should do differently and what the lessons might be for the recovery ahead of us.    

With governments prepared to lead, listen to experts and involve communities in decision-making, not only is a successful recovery possible – we can also choose to reconsider things we thought were fixed. We have an opportunity to create a better future, so let’s use it.
