Work-Life Balance refers to the balancing between work and personal life including unpaid labour (European Parliament, 2016). However, there is not a single definition of it and there are many aspects that are important such as income, working hours, support from the job environment, maternity leave, etc. In the BALANCE project, there are two important factors regarding work-life balance. First, the gender-equality factor because the project is more focused on women, and second, the COVID-19 pandemic that affected their Work-Life Balance.

One of the outcomes of the BALANCE project is the Better BALANCE Guide which upskills adult educators  to be able to successfully deliver training on the nuances of remote working, creating balance within a digital world and recognising the imbalances in your life. 

In order to develop this Guide, the partners developed a Knowledge Base document which not only presents the Work-Life Balance situation in each partner’s country but also further good practices and references for more information and study regarding the specific topic. Additionally, the Knowledge Base served as a base in which the Better BALANCE Guide with DIY templates and activities was developed.
