Changing times

Where next after four decades of time use evolution, and four months of time use revolution?

The way individuals and households split their time between work, chores and leisure has changed dramatically over the past four decades. Debates about how it should change further, including calls for a shorter working week, had already taken off – even before this slow time use evolution was thrown up in the air by the covid-driven temporary revolution in how we spend our time.

Have decades of rising prosperity allowed people to substitute work for more leisure time? How have time use trends differed by gender and income level? And will the pandemic herald a step change in the way we work, care and play?

Following a 12-month investigation into time use, supported by Trust for London, the Resolution Foundation is hosting an interactive webinar to debate and answer these questions. Following a presentation of the key highlights from the investigation’s final report, we will hear from leading experts on how people’s time use has changed, and what the future may bring. Viewers will be able to submit questions to the panel before and during the event.
