For the first time in living memory, the entire world has come to standstill against a single, unified force. The COVID-19 pandemic has illuminated some of society’s darkest secrets, and has added to the urgency of solving them. The future that we are hurtling towards is now a complete unknown. Amidst such a crisis, to come closer as a world, it is now more important than ever before to connect with one another and amplify diverse perspectives. In this spirit, Tra i Leoni, the student newspaper of Bocconi University, spearheaded the creation of a global edition of their newspaper–a issue that collects different perspectives on the pandemic.
With contribution from student newspapers from all over the world, this edition showcases 14 stories–including one written by our very own staff editor, Xie Yihui.
We would sincerely like to thank Tra i Leoni for this opportunity, especially Barbara Balcon, Deputy Director and the Head of this Global Edition, who remained patient with us throughout.
We hope you enjoy reading this piece, and we hope that even for just a moment, we paint for you a vision of a interconnected world.
