YAR High-Level Policy Conference “Addressing the impact of COVID-19 on Youth”

Online

The UNESCO Youth As Researchers (YAR) global initiative on COVID-19 connects and engages with young people to conduct research on the impacts of COVID-19 on young people and the responses young people have implemented to tackle these.

The new Policy Conference on COVID-19 will serve as a complement, a follow-up to the YAR Knowledge-Sharing Meeting (held in October 2021) as well as an opportunity for the YAR participants, along with Heads of State and Ministers responsible for youth, to discuss priority commitments and policy solutions that respond to the ways that COVID-19 has impacted youth. The Conference aims to launch a multi-stakeholder global coalition to address the impact of the pandemic on youth and to secure tangible commitments to a Global Grant Scheme to sustainably support youth-led research and youth-led solutions to the crisis.
