Thomas L. Friedman in Conversation with Gidi Grinstein

While We Were COVID-ing: Innovation at a Time of Crisis
Thomas L. Friedman and Gidi Grinstein

Join Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman with Gidi Grinstein, founder of the Reut Group and Tikkun Olam Makers (TOM), for a conversation about the global innovators coming up with creative solutions to our most pressing problems and the Covid-19 crisis at breakneck speed.

If necessity is the mother of invention, then the pandemic has presented unprecedented opportunities to fix our health care system and economy. Friedman and Grinstein discuss TOM’s brilliant use of 3-D printing and open-source design that could help distribute innovative solutions and protective equipment all over—and share stories of people coming up with new ways to better our world.
