The Lockdown Lab was designed, delivered and resourced by AKOU. In 2020, we took the COVID-19 lockdown as an opportunity to dedicate more time energy to the things that truly matter to us.
For 10 weeks AKOU hosted a series of online workshops with community connectors from across the country. The members of the lab explored different topics such as social capital, social value and social currency by completing activities. Moreover, we seriously talked about what it would take to use data and social impact metrics to disrupt the way economics currently work in relation to disadvantaged groups.
