Hello,

Right now we're living through a period that will define the course of our future as individuals, families, communities and a nation. But what will that future look like? And how will the daily changes we're making right now influence that?

We're looking for a broad selection of households across the UK to take part in a unique research / journalism project to chart the experience of a nation in lockdown. Our goal is to tell the real-life stories of how we're changing not just our behaviours, but also our relationships, outlooks and emotions. 

What will you be asked to do? If you are selected to take part you will join an online community of people from across the UK posting updates about life in your household. You will be given the opportunity to tell your household's story in private – viewable only by the project moderators – and to join discussions with the broader community about your view of what it all means. Every two weeks we'll write and publish the stories that matter most to you to help build an understanding of how different people are experiencing the same phenomenon. A private and secure online site will be set up for you to post your stories – using a mixture of text, photos and videos – that you can easily access through either smartphone, tablet or computer. 

Time required: 40 minutes
