A new study from the European Training Foundation (ETF) and Eurofound demonstrates the resilience and response that citizens in the EU and ten EU neighbouring countries faced during the COVID-19 pandemic. The report, Living, working and COVID-19, shows that despite the challenges, citizens from Albania, Georgia, Jordan, Kosovo*, Lebanon, Moldova, Morocco, North Macedonia, Palestine*, and Tunisia remain optimistic.
The findings underscore the importance of investing in education and the potential of teleworking as a tool for work-life balance and flexibility and provide a roadmap for citizens in the EU neighbourhood to build a better future for all.
The European Training Foundation and Eurofound are now preparing for the 2023 edition of the e-survey covering more countries from the EU’s neighbouring regions and all EU Member States. Next to living and working conditions, the research will shed light on access to and quality of education, training, work-based learning and career development opportunities. Results will become available in the second part of the year.
