Youth Escape COVID
Erasmus Plus Strategic Partnership - Innovation - YOUTH
NEED / PROBLEM
In the last 8 months the COVID-19 pandemic and related lockdown measures have produced significant interruptions in young people’s lives, the impact of which is still to be analysed and understood in the future. However what we can grasp at this stage of the evolution and what some research already pointed out is that young people have been hit in their transition phases to adulthood and autonomy (young people transition to education, to employment, towards economic and financial independence, or to establishing their own family, to getting the right to vote). If everybody was affected in some way by the pandemic (children, young-people, adults, elderly) - for young-people is an devastating hit that affected, stopped, changed or even derailed their evolution and becoming even active citizens in the local and EU community - we are entering not a short period but a longer era of new normality that young people will have to cope with.
