The Covid-19 Transport, Travel and Social Adaptation Study started in 2020, a ground-breaking longitudinal survey in 10 areas of the UK has tracked, since the start of the pandemic, the implications for us all from Covid on how we live today. There was a recognition that Covid provided the chance for a rethink, that it would somehow reshape our lives; but back in 2020 we were not quite sure how.

As the study said at its outset, the outbreak of Covid-19 was an unprecedented shock in an era of highly connected and globalised living. It was, and still is, a serious medical emergency and also an episode that we must learn from.

This podcast asks what we have learnt from the initial Covid-19 lockdown in March 2020, and where do we go next?

Please note: This episode was recorded shortly after the then Chancellor of the Exchequer Kwasi Kwarteng delivered a Ministerial Statement entitled The Growth Plan to the House of Commons.
