Young people at the forefront

My COVID-19 story Campaign

The storytelling initiative is part of UNESCO’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is meant to put the spotlight on young people – how they feel, how they act, how they thrive during these challenging times

Some media have reported negative actions and even stigmatized young people for their response to COVID-19, "Young people don't respect confinement", "young people don’t care about spreading the virus", are just some examples that made headlines.

Yet, young people are day-in-day-out proving to be key actors when it comes to finding solutions to global problems – from the fight against discrimination, climate change, gender equality, and many other issues. Today, at a time of an unprecedented health crisis, you are once again on the front line. More and more of you appear to be pioneers when it comes to inventing new forms of solidarity.
