Fragestellung(en) der Befragung

This research project aims at investigating how adolescents and young adults perceive the novel coronavirus/COVID-19 and how they cope with the new challenges during such an extraordinary situation.

We asked adolescents and young adults from German and Italian speaking parts of Switzerland as well as youth in Italy about their perception of the virus (e.g., risks, fears, strategies and recommended behaviour), civic engagement, the experience of friendships and family, and how adolescents deal with the home-schooling routine.
What do adolescents and young adults know about the virus, how do they cope with everyday school life and how do they adapt to the new situation?

The results provide important scientific foundations for more targeted support for young people in future situations.

Information about the sample
