When the COVID-19 global pandemic hit in 2020, governments around the world temporarily closed educational institutions in an attempt to contain the spread of the virus. But how did learning continue for young and old during this time?

In our new publication Snapshots of learning cities’ responses to COVID-19, we showcase local responses to COVID-19.

The TV programme Every Home, A Health Base is an initiative comprising various health-related educational content, as well as programmes designed to promote a sense of community among the people of Kashan.
