Many of us have more time than usual to stop and think at the moment. So, let us know your thoughts about these ideas. There is no right or wrong answer - what we'd like is for you to explain your opinions clearly to us.
To make it easier for you to make a choice, we've divided the questions by age, but please choose any questions which interest you and make you think hard.
