The ‘At Home, together – Fighting Boredom’ workshop is a response to the Covid-19 situation, where the social-distancing measures have forced individuals and families to spend much more time together, in the confines of their homes. Home has become a multipurpose facility (family shelter, work office, school, place to relax, cultural center). This situation creates many opportunities as well as a few challenges for households. Mr. Gabriele, YMCA’s Youth Empowerment Coordinator, was in collaboration with Mr. Matthew, Ms. Nicola, and Ms. Danica from the Willingness Team. This live stream aimed at unpacking ‘Boredom’ by discussing its socio-cultural connotations and its causes from a psychological and health perspective. Reference was also made to practical ways how to combat and avoid feelings of boredom.
