Discover how to thrive at home during a pandemic: Surrey hosts virtual exploration

As COVID-19 forces many people across the country to spend more time at home, the University of Surrey is hosting a virtual event that will help unlock different ways to thrive in lockdown.


On Wednesday 11 November, from 2- 5 pm, Surrey will be hosting an interactive discussion about the different ways we can all make the most of being indoors during the colder months.

The session will feature talks about how to work from home successfully; the benefits of indoor gardening; finding happiness through your favourite places in your home; and much more.

Those interested in attending can register here.

The virtual event is part of the Economics and Social Research Council Festival of Social Sciences.

Dr Eleanor Ratcliffe, Lecturer in Environmental Psychology at the University of Surrey, said:  "The pandemic has forced us all to adapt and come to terms with staying at home, restricting our movements and often preventing us from doing things we enjoy. Our event is about not just finding ways to cope but developing strategies so we can thrive."
