Youth Engagement for Global Action on Health and Education
This webinar is hosted in collaboration with WOSM and ACWAY

Although COVID-19 has resulted in many restrictions for younger generations, such as school closures and cancelled gatherings, that didn’t stop young people from demonstrating their continued leadership and initiative in supporting each other and their local communities.

According to the UN, young people are and will continue to be hugely affected by the pandemic’s socioeconomic impacts; however, they are also active in global response and can be an important force for community outreach in times of crisis, especially for health and education. Youth took the chance to turn challenges of the pandemic into opportunities by finding creative and innovative ways to provide support for the communities that needed it most.

International Youth Day provides an opportunity to celebrate young peoples’ voices, actions and initiatives, as well as their meaningful, universal and equitable engagement.

Join KAICIID and its partners, The World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) and A Common Word Among the Youth (ACWAY), in leading youth organizations around the world to discuss how youth are responding to the health and education crisis. This webinar aims at recognising the importance of youth participation in social, educational and health processes and developments.
