Global Survey on Youth and COVID-19
A survey on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on youth rights, with a focus on employment and education is being conducted by the Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth (DJY) and its partners—including the International Labour Organization, the UN Major Group for Children and Youth, AIESEC, the European Youth Forum, the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa and the United Nations Human Rights Office.
With an aim to bring youth voices to the forefront of action and policy responses, the survey focuses on four main areas:
- the crisis’ effects on youth’s employment and learning situation and aspirations
- effects on psychological well-being and mental health
- young people’s engagement in social activism and volunteerism
- their opinions on policy responses taken so far and expectations on the role of the authorities, including their own proposals to protect the labour market prospects of young people during and after the crisis.
Let your voices be heard by decision-makers across the globe, including a community of youth organizations and United Nations entities.
Survey closes May 21, 2020.
