On the basis of the recent onset of coronavirus outbreak and an unprecedented situation that affects our everyday life, we decided to conduct on-line research on the perception of home / social isolation during the Covid-19 epidemic. The research is coordinated by dr Joanna Stepien from our Department and professor Tomasz Michalski from Department of Regional Development at the University of Gdańsk.
