Perspectives from the Corona Pandemic Findings and Recommendations to Improve Resilience Green Paper Special of Forum Public Safety & Security (German)

Learning from the crisis during the crisis: That is the basic idea of Green Paper Special "Perspectives from the Corona Pandemic". Forum Public Safety & Security is the first think tank to present a self-contained work on crisis management, prevention, digitization, communication and social implications. Selected recommendations for action are presented in this workshop and discussed with the participants. 
The resilience of society in precaution, protection and contraception can be sustainably strengthened from the experience of the ongoing pandemic. Forum Public Safety & Security (ZOES) brought together actors from the authorities and organizations with security tasks (BOS), politics, research and business in five thematic groups in order to develop good ideas for strengthening civil protection. The result is the Green Paper Special "Perspectives from the Corona Pandemic". Forum Public Safety & Security is the first think tank to present a self-contained work on crisis management, prevention, digitization, communication and social implications. Some of the proposals are new, and some of the solutions that have already been discussed are refined and their significance is underpinned. Co-authors of ZOES want to talk to all those involved in disaster risk reduction. The lectures focus on recommendations on management structures, smart management of bottleneck resources as well as psychological effects. ZOES has an impact on politics and will also place the proposals discussed with a view to the forthcoming formation of a new government.
