The Third Age Trust is setting up a shared learning project ‘Living History in Unprecedented Times’
U3A members are being asked to help craft a shared learning project where they create living history of this extraordinary time. This project is a living history of members’ experiences during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic. We are currently living through an unprecedented period, due to the coronavirus and everyone’s daily lives are being affected. The situation is impacting on people in lots of different ways and you will all have your own experiences, thoughts and reflections on what this time is like for you and how it is affecting you, both on a practical and on a psychological level.
We would really like to capture all of this as part of a UK wide living history project.
