Call to Youth: How are young people being impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic?

4 June 2020

Help us shape the Youth As Researchers COVID19 Project, a new global youth-led research initiative that seeks to answer questions like these.

COVID-19 has created an unprecedented health crisis, disrupting the lives of thousands of individuals, as well as their societies. As this pandemic expands, young people have been amongst those mobilizing to shape new forms of solidarity, demonstrating humanism and creativity. Young people are amongst those impacted by the current crisis in terms of mental and physical health, learning and professional development, civic engagement and respect for their rights on all these fronts young people are also facing important disruptions and changes.

UNESCO and the UNESCO Chairs at the National University of Ireland Galway and Penn State University are committed to ensuring that young people have meaningful ways to contribute to sustainable development - ways that are designed and managed by young people as our partners.

Be part of the design!

If you identify as a young person in your country, we invite you to get involved in designing this research initiative! Your answers to the questions in this Survey will be used to identify the key research questions that need to be answered and to design the research focus. The Survey asks about your experiences with COVID-19 and the things you have seen happening to your friends and other young people.

This Survey will only take you 5 minutes.
Questions in the English language is available here until 15 June 2020.
