Quantitative survey: European panorama of innovative initiatives in favor of student well-being
As shown by numerous studies and research, many students suffer from problems of malaise. Malaise can be defined as a general feeling of discomfort, illness, or unease whose exact cause is difficult to identify. Well-being can be defined by the state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy.
Some groups of students are particularly vulnerable to issues of well-being due to the discrimination they already face (e.g. refugees, people with disabilities). Since the beginning of 2020, the health crisis has had a strong impact on students' well-being. In addition, new forms of malaise are emerging such as eco-anxiety which affects 15% of young people (2016 IPSOS survey). The well-being of students, therefore, represents a huge challenge for higher education institutions, but also for student organisations acting in favour of their peers.
In this context, we develop the WISE project "Well-being Innovations for Students in Europe" to work on this topic. Over three years, we will conduct several activities with the very first one being this quantitative survey “European panorama of innovative initiatives in favour of student well-being".
There are 25 questions in this survey.
