The health crisis that we are experiencing affects everyone of us in our relationship to
the broader community, to our family and relatives, to our privacy and to the
organization of our work and leisure activities. It raises questions about our
relationship with the world and invites us to imagine what the post-crisis might be like.

In order to contribute to these debates, École Polytechnique, via its Executive
Education, has just launched regular webinars, "Les Minutes de l'X",
to offer
stakeholders of the economy, and society in general, one-hour discussions
with L’X professors and researchers in order to rethink the post-crisis world.
