The Book of 2020

Final major project

The year 2020 was full of world shifting events, from the deadly coronavirus pandemic to a global movement for racial justice.

Beginning with the raging Australian bush fires and riots around the world, 2020 started with the impeachment of President Trump, murmurs of World War 3 after a US drone hit and killed the Iranian major general, tensions around the world rose as George Floyd was killed by police sparking the global movement for racial justice.

The Coronavirus pandemic spread worldwide, took so many lives and put the world on lockdown. And this book tells the story of 2020 with environmental, political and news events as a reminder of this year that will go down in history.
