The health consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic have been the subject of studies all over the world for months. But what are the effects on our mind, and on society, of the restrictions, of isolation, of the radical change in our habits that we have been experiencing for more than a year now? Women, men, children, young people, the elderly, workers, students: what effects is each category experiencing, and which ones will perhaps manifest themselves in the long term? It is likely that, in addition to having a negative impact on economic growth, the pandemic can also have adverse consequences in other areas, from social inclusion to mental well-being. Research has begun to deal with these issues, referring to the few existing studies on pandemics of the past, and producing the first provisional results in terms of data and observations. The discussion among the experts of the round table will be an opportunity to explore these issues, and try to offer ideas for solutions.
The event will be streamed on the IMT School’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.
