Beyond Lockdown: the ‘pandemic scar’ on young people
This report from the European Youth Forum examines the deep social, economic, and also mental health challenges young people are facing as a result of the Covid-19 crisis.
It analyses how the pandemic and lockdown measures have already severely affected young people’s work and income, education and learning, and mental health and wellbeing.
This research is based on the findings of a survey of 4,500 young people across Europe as well as focus groups to get more detailed feedback from young people on their experiences. It aims to investigate promising practices as well as gaps in the institutional response, and identify key recommendations for the way forward.
