Trends Report 2023

web trends banner

Living with Covid-19 as the fourth year of the pandemic drove public policy on health issues and social contact on the ground everywhere well into 2023. It was a year characterised by shock earthquake events and peace and conflict issues as the Russian invasion of Ukraine entered its second year and the latest and most extreme violence in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict took place.

Still underway, the conflicts effected supply chains, accommodation centres and emergency support measures across the EU, including in Ireland.

This short impact and web trends report reflects some of the headline data from across 2023 on with resources, launches, public events and guides for educators on a range of emerging topics.

Our thanks to everyone who used the website, joined our events, worked in partnership with us on so many ways and generally reached out on social media or otherwise.

Be seeing you in 2024.
