The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has changed our everyday lives. Directly or indirectly, it will impact the way we live and work together. The pandemic also came at a time when Europe was experiencing profound demographic and societal changes.
In response the European Commission has adopted the first-ever report outlining the demographic changes in the European Union. The report sheds light on the drivers and effects of long-term changes across Europe’s societies and communities.
The main reported long-term demographic changes in Europe are:
- Longer life expectancy;
- Lower birth rates;
- Ageing societies;
- Smaller households;
- Increased urbanization.
