The presentation of the study “Education and Youth in post-COVID-19 Europe – Crisis effects and policy recommendations” by the Policy Department B took place during the CULT committee meeting on 10 May 2021.

This study demonstrates that the COVID-19 pandemic posed unprecedented and multidimensional challenges to the education systems and youth sector, revealing the lack of preparedness in terms of crisis management and digital education responses, as well as reinforcing structural weaknesses of education delivery. Given that various sectors of education and youth sector faced distinct challenges, there are valuable lessons to be learnt from policy responses and best practices across Europe. The common goal should be to build more resilient education systems, which are responsive and adaptive to future crises.
