  • How can we support parents without devaluing colleges who for any reason do not have children?
  • Working from home saves you time and space, but it also means that everything is brought together. What kind of boundaries do you have to set with yourself? With your children/family? With your colleagues?

  • Were you always working remotely? If not, when and how did you decide to work remotely?
  • How different does a day in your remote/freelancing working life look now as compared to before the pandemic? What new challenges do you face now, and has anything gotten easier than it was before?

(Or in your case, how co-working and coliving should be structured?

Mariette Ciiggar: Theatre director + yoga >>vide range, 4 children 12-16) working + partner working from home now.


  • What is the reality in your household? How many hours do you spend working from your screen every day, and how much time does your child spend during that time using technology themselves?
  • Who takes care of what chores and caretaking responsibilities in your home? Is the distribution of labour in your household what you would want it to be? has it changed since the pandemic started? do you have more responsibilities at home, and if so how have you handled this?
