In 2020, the world went into lockdown. A situation of unparalleled proportions in which friends became our lifeline, developing important emotional connections.
Together we explored new ways to stay connected, to support one another, to alleviate anxieties and cope with the many uncertainties that came with the outbreak of Covid-19. We supported one another by making, sharing our experiences, good and bad.
We also learned that social distance does not have to mean emotional isolation. Video calls have now become part of our lives, helping us through crises of all kinds.
With Friend-Ship Screenshot Competition, Youmanity aimed to help to reclaim the value of friendship by encouraging participants to celebrate family and friends through a screenshot!
