Young adults in times of corona

Corona en de impact ervan op jongvolwassenen

The outbreak of COVID-19 and the measures to combat it have changed people’s social lives all over the world. During this unusual time, some interesting questions have arisen: What impact does the COVID-19 pandemic have on the lives of young people? How do young people think about, and deal with the regulations intended to prevent the spread of the virus? How do they feel and behave towards others during this time?

This project, “Young Adults in Times of Corona,” investigates young adults’ attitudes and behaviors during the COVID-19 pandemic. This study involves young people from Argentina, Chile, China, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Spain, Taiwan, The Netherlands, Turkey, and the United States. Participants provide information on their thoughts and behaviors by filling out an online questionnaire.


Our collaboration partners in this Utrecht University project are Laura Padilla-Walker (Brigham University, Utah) and Gustavo Carlo (University of California, California). Researchers from 13 other countries are also involved in the project.


The project is funded by 'FSW COVID-19 Fund'.
