Podcast: “Imagine something out of the box” How are young people responding to the pandemic?

Power in the Pandemic Podcast Youth

How are young people responding to the Coronavirus crisis?

What’s it like to manage a soap factory during the pandemic?

How are young people using the internet to build bridges between generations during lockdowns?

How does this virus exacerbate the ongoing economic crisis and rates of youth unemployment?

Young people’s voices are often the last to be heard during a crisis. Young people are rarely deemed the experts and they don’t usually hold positions of power in their communities. In this episode, we flip the spotlight. We’ll hear the experiences of young people during the coronavirus pandemic and learn how they are harnessing their power to take localised action in their communities in a way that big organisations and governments can’t. We’ll hear from young people running a blood bank in Pakistan, a Community Conversation Facilitator tackling fake news in Ethiopia and young people volunteering in Bangladesh, Canada, Quebec and Italy.
