Social BRIDGES 1: Society, psychology and behaviour during and post COVID-19 lockdown (22-24 July 2020)

The present COVID-19 pandemic is challenging each of us and society in unique ways. One positive outcome, however, is the extraordinary effort being made to try and bridge the physical gap as a result of lockdown measures. So too in academia, where international teams of researchers from universities and institutes across the globe are collaborating to try better understand the effect of self-isolation and distancing during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

The two-day virtual exchange event on 22-24 July 2020 provided news from up-to-date research investigating how society, behaviour and psychology are being affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Studies about the disruptive energies of the pandemic and the collective worldwide steps into the new normal were presented in three main sections: individual behaviour during and after lockdown;
doing things together during and after lockdown; mental health care: challenges and proposed solutions.
