Turbo puberty in the Corona greenhouse: what needs and desires teenagers have now

The generation of 15- to 19-year-olds had a hard time during the pandemic. At the same time, they have grown from the challenges and developed amazing skills. This also changes the wishes and needs of the young generation. This is one of the central results of the depth-psychological-qualitative as well as representative-quantitative study, which rheingold conducted for the magazine STERN.

The digital copy of the entire study costs 475 euros incl. VAT.
