The unforeseen challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic have taken a significant toll on people across the world, with populations affected in diverse ways. As well as the direct health implications of COVID-19, in the context of widespread school closures, increased economic insecurity, forced isolation measures and limited access to face-to-face social support, many are concerned about the secondary health and wellbeing challenges being faced by adolescents and young people across the world. Many are interested to know: What are the main health and wellbeing challenges that young people are facing? How are digital spaces currently mobilizing providing support? What can organizations seeking to support young people do to fill the gaps? In order to explore these questions, UNESCO and the YTH Initiative (Youth Tech Health) reached out to and held focus group discussions with 20 young people, aged between 19 and 30.
