    With Cole Armstrong, NeuroSpot, and Mark Finnegan, Clarity Insight.

    We know things have changed in New Zealand as a result of COVID-19. But which things? And by how much? What will the experience mean for the attitudes and behaviours of everyday New Zealanders? Which habits have been disrupted? Which have been created? What are short-term reactions? And what may change long-term in the way we think and act?

    The 2020 Vision project sought to answer those questions by following the stories of the same 30 New Zealanders over time.
