COVID-19 ના પરિણામે, ટેમ્પરેચર ઓન ધ સ્ટ્રીટસ એ કોઈએક વિવિધ પાંસાઓનો સર્જનાત્મક પ્રતિભાવ છે કે જે સમગ્ર લેસ્ટરશાયર અને તેનાથી આગળની, વિવિધ કમ્યૂનિટિઝમાંથી લોકોનું જોડાણ કરે છે, અને જે દ્વિ- અઠવાડિક બુલેટિન અને પોડકાસ્ટની શ્રેણીનું વિશિષ્ટ અંગ છે.

તમે દરેક એપિસોડ કે ઘટનાના અંતમાં અને ટ્રાંસ્ક્રિપ્ટમાં, સાથોસાથ ન્યૂઝલેટરના સંક્ષિપ્ત વિભાગના ન્યૂઝમાં પોડકાસ્ટનો અનુવાદ કરેલ ટૂંકસાર જોવા મળી શકે છે.

Temperatura na Ulicach to projekt, który został stworzony jako kreatywna i wielopłaszczyznowa odpowiedź na obecną pandemię COVID-19. Ten projekt poprzez codwutygodniowy newsletterze i serię podcastów ma za zadanie łączyć ludzi z różnych społeczności w Leicester i poza.

Serendipity has developed a new podcast series that addresses issues facing Black, Asian and other minority and marginalised communities in Leicester. The podcast series explores a range of topics including the impact of COVID-19 and practical advice in the aftermath, mental health and wellbeing as an informative dialogue with community activists, academics and experts. The podcast provides support and advice to help people to rebuild their lives and their communities. Given the current spike in cases in Leicester and lockdown being renewed in the city this is a much-needed resource.
