Fumble Talks: Have You Struggled With Motivation In The Pandemic?

Young people explain how the pandemic has impacted on their sense of motivation, and the role social media is playing in keeping them going

In this Fumble Talks, we hear from young people how the world online is shaping our experiences of the pandemic. We explore how social media and technology is impacting on us in the pandemic, for better or worse. 

We also explore motivation. Motivation for many of us has been particularly affected by the pandemic, especially during lockdowns. How have you built motivation when finding a sense of self and structure has been so difficult?

Here, young people from across the UK reflect on their personal 2020 journeys.
