Lunch Session: How has our buying behavior changed in the pandemic?

"Speeding standstill - What traces does the pandemic leave in society?" - this is the question addressed in a total of six lunch sessions of the Bucerius Lab of the ZEIT Foundation. On March 10, 2021, from 12 to 1 p.m., our ECDF professor Tilman Santarius (TU Berlin) will be our guest.

Together with Andrea Gröppel-Klein, Director of the Institute for Consumer and Behavioral Research at Saarland University, the topic will be how purchasing behavior changed during the pandemic. What was particularly consumed in the past twelve months? Will online shopping and the digitalization of consumption last? The discussion round will be moderated by Christine Watty from Deutschlandfunk Kultur.

The events are part of the digital event series "Rasender Stillstand - Welche Spuren hinterlassenlässt die Pandemie in der Gesellschaft?" (Frenetic standstill - What traces does the pandemic leave in society?) by the Bucerius Lab of the ZEIT Foundation in cooperation with Holtzbrinck Berlin and Wissenschaft im Dialog. The series of events is about reflecting on how the current crisis is impacting on an individual level, but also on the social community. In a total of six lunch sessions on Wednesdays between 12 and 1 p.m., guests from science and culture will discuss new everyday phenomena and habits in lockdown. How do we deal with the speed of digital progress on the one hand and the feeling of standstill in our lives on the other? What does the pandemic teach us about our role in (world) society? And how do we manage to develop perspectives for a better "after"? The first event will take place on Wednesday, February 24.

Participation is free of charge. Registration and further information is available //here
