Study: over 50% of the young people in Romania lost their trust and motivation in the emergency state

Over 60% of the young people in Romania got bored at home during the emergency state and 56% of them lost their trust and motivation in their own forces, show the data of the study Insights PulseZ, a national barometre meant to identify the reactions and behaviour of the young people in the period of emergency.

Moreover, according to the study, the brisk interruption of the daily activity led to emotional imbalance for some of them. In total, the study Insights PulseZ identified 19 issues  which the young people faced during the emergency state. More than 50% left the lack of socialisation face-to-face and approximately 35% of them accepted they had fluctuant emotional states and felt tired.

‘Even if technology is part of our life, and young people are used to spending enough time online, the answers they gave to our questions show the lack of interaction which make them lose motivation and trust. Many young people admitted they adapted with difficulty, had sleep problems, felt the lack of physical exercise, and some were not very satisfied with the online school they had to take part in’stated Alin Claudiu Apostu, coordinator Insights.
According to the study, 44% of the young people in Romania spent over eight hours perday online, while only 10% spent less than three hours. 33% learnt for school while the same number opt ed to watch films or online serials. A higher percentage was identified among those who took part in online school, more than 40% opting for such an activity. 
Similarly, one out of four young people chose to spend time on social media platforms or consume content on streaming online channels. Out of the preferred platforms, Instagram was the most popular, with six out of ten young people who consumed or created content. One out of two Romanians preferred to watch YouTube, while approximately one out of four used TikTok showing thus the entrance of the social media platform in Top 5 the most used platforms in Romania by young people between 16 and 24.

The Insights PulseZ study was made by the team Vreau sa fiu Antreprenor ( I want to be an entrepreneur) and Insights in the Romanian Business Leaders with the support of partners D&D Research, Oxygen Communications, Loopaa Marcom, Brandocracy & Wisemetry.
