Goodbye to smalltalk: DISTRACT corona research in the news

In June 2020, DISTRACT published the first findings from our study of how young people in Copenhagen, Denmark, managed to get through the corona lockdown. Read more about the study here.

During the summer break, Danish newspapers have reported on the study.

Weekendavisen printed a feature article about the study on the 24th of July entitled "Farvel til Smalltalk", where DISTRACT vice-PI Kristoffer Albris was interviewed about what loneliness means, and how young people have used the digital in new ways during the lockdown.

Kristeligt Dagblad also made a mention of the study in their paper on the 3rd of July, entitled "Unge: Nedlukningen var ikke en katastrofe."
