Another week – and how quickly they are passing.

This week – Reference to a very interesting podcast session with Shawn Richards – CEO of Ink Aviation

Providers of Technology solutions – especially around the topic of Vaccine passports/test certificates

Steven and I discuss the different perspectives of Digital Health Passports.
No Jab – No Job and would/could/should vaccine passports & test certs be a key prerequisite to opening of certain venues etc.

Positives starting to trickle across news desks and media –

Numbers of vaccinations
G7 positive commitments
Everyone deserves the same access especially those that are in vulnerable groups
Humanity is however very positive and generous and now more time is being spent on ‘good news stories’ and generosity as well as ‘feel good’ impact which is much needed and should be focussed on even more.
AA -partnering with American Red Cross to aid winter storms
QR & Cargolux & EY partnering with Unicef & humanitarian airfreight initiative as part of many global airlines covering routes to more than 100 countries in support of the Covax Facility.

As seasons change – fresh hope manifests itself and this year needs to see global solidarity & collaboration

BUILD BACK BETTER / BRING BACK BETTER / BOUNCE BACK BETTER – Whatever the chosen term – things need to be better as we move forward together, embracing technology and addressing a legacy of waste – Sustainability is at the forefront of everyone’s outlook

Accepting the debt being accumulated by governments and businesses – there will be reflection in prices to come!
