The study aims to analyse the consequences of the pandemic for CSOs, so as to highlight their role and the benefits of their actions for European societies. It intends to collect information on the impact of COVID-19 on the work, the sustainability and the future of CSOs in Europe, as well as to identify the response of CSOs to the new challenges brought by the pandemic, namely the actions they took to respond to societal needs arisen as a consequence of COVID-19 crisis. The results of this study will be used for recommendations and advocacy and will help the EESC to define the best strategy and measures necessary to support the CSOs for the coming period.
