Life After Lockdown
Include this article in your Skills Builder Journal. It could help you develop...
Life’s been a little bit weird these past few months. But it isn’t going to stay this way forever. We’re slowly getting back to some sort of normality. We asked you what do you want the future to look like? You shared your voice and your answers.
From fun and small to big and brave, we want to know all about what life could - and should - be like, after lockdown.
For some inspiration, check out our collaboration with Young People’s Laureate and acclaimed poet, Caleb Femi - who used some of the answers submitted last month to create a brilliant visual manifesto of what the new normal will be like.
If you want to, you can still share your answers to the following questions. We’re still sharing them on our socials:
SELF: What have you discovered about yourself during lockdown? What did you find most challenging and how did you overcome it? Have you found any positives or do you have any happy memories from lockdown? What skills have you developed that you want to keep building on? How will you use your newfound skills for the better? What have you learned about your relationships with the people you’re close to that you’re grateful for?
PEOPLE: What will be the first thing you do with your friends and family? Where’s the first place you want to visit after lockdown? Has lockdown changed your perspective on family and friends? Who did you miss the most during lockdown? How will you celebrate when lockdown is lifted?
WORLD: How do you hope the world will change? What do you hope will be the same? What do you think needs to be different? Is there anything you’re anxious about? What one thing are you going to do to change the world after lockdown? Where do you want to go after lockdown and why? What are you most excited about doing when lockdown ends - immediately and beyond to 2021?
Getting involved is simple:
- Use the form below to upload a 15 second selfie video with your answers (you can do one for each area, or answer as many or as few questions as you fancy)
- Or upload a picture and use the comment box below to give your answer
- Don’t forget to include your Insta handle in the comment box too - that way we can tag you when we share it to our stories!
WHAT WE'LL DO
Over the next few weeks, we’ll share your ideas on our socials and tag you. And eventually, we’ll turn it into a video to share everywhere. To let everyone know that you’ve got something to say, something to change, and something to do. Because no matter what the situation, you’re ready to say No We Can.
So what are you waiting for?
