Voices from all over the world come together to help people with Covid-19 and Lockdown

1st April 2020

Global Voices unite amidst Covid-19, in the form of a group of people, who want to help each other, during the current Covid-19 pandemic. They’ve joined forces to write and produce a book. And all in the space of a week.

The book, Surviving the Coronavirus Lockdown and Social Isolation is available as an e-book. Any monies raised will go to a mental health charity. All the participants have given their time, knowledge and support free of charge. 

This collaboration includes 65 contributors, all committed to helping people in lockdown. and experiencing social isolation. They come from:

  • China
  • Hungary
  •  Italy, 
  • Japan
  • Malaysia
  • Portugal
  • South Korea
  • Spain
  • Switzerland
  • Sweden
  • Thailand
  • and United Kingdom.

How the book is arranged

The articles in the book offer ideas, advice, tips, and experiences that readers can draw from. They’re arranged under the following headings:

  • Conquering social isolation
  • Mastering mind and body, 
  • Understanding COVID-19
  • Community, learning and teaching,
  •  Work and organisations
  •  Personal stories and the future.

Contributors include the thoughts of children, teenagers, business owners, retired people. And also those with no convenient label but yet have something to say that can help others.

Using the hashtag #LetsResetNormal, the intent of this collaboration is:
1.To galvanise the positives and
2. Give people hope, direction and inspiration as we move towards an uncertain future together.

 Nobody knows what the new normal will look like. We hope this is a positive way of bringing these ideas together to influence politicians, business owners, and, most importantly, citizens that good can come from the situation we are in. If we work together.

This is a movement towards radical, positive change.

All have given their time for free. There is no commercial angle to this and the book will be widely available free of charge. And what also makes this project exceptional is its short production time. From conception to publication, the process has taken a mere ten days. That demonstrates the commitment of all involved, to help others.

Where to get it

The book is here (UK) www.wordcatcher.com/LetsResetNormal and on the social media accounts/websites of everyone involved.
