Today’s generation of young people will be disproportionately affected by the long-lasting consequences of the pandemic.
Around the world, young people are driving change and contributing to the COVID-19 pandemic response and efforts through grassroots actions and voluntary service. The Global Youth Mobilization will focus on alleviating the negative repercussions of the pandemic on young people, amplifying their positive contributions to addressing the effects in their local communities.
As part of this exciting collaboration between the Big 6 Youth Organizations, WAGGGS is seeking to engage MOs that have already started to implement projects with and for girls and young women that address the needs of their local communities to overcome the impact of COVID-19, as well as MOs who are interested in doing more.
Issues the Mobilization will address
Here are some of the key issues and challenges the Global Youth Mobilization aims to address:
- Gaps in education and schooling
- COVID-19 health effects and lack of healthcare
- Economic inequalities and lost employment
- Grief, loneliness and mental health challenges
- Domestic and gender-based violence
- Gender inequality and family planning support
- Negative stigma of young people
