Conscious and conflict 0 Reviews, By: Syeda Zauraiz Sohail
This work suggests government and public authorities must improve young people’s representation on participatory platforms and review access to support. Schools, youth organisations and service providers should review forums for engaging young people in decision-making. As for media, it must balance the portrayal of young people during the pandemic, from involving them in reporting roles to covering their personal stories. “The report asks difficult questions about why young people’s voices have been so absent from decision-making during the pandemic. Far from being naïve, young people spoke lucidly about their experiences of family life, friendships, access to education and healthcare. They held strong views about political and public responses to the crisis, and about what actions are needed, supported by their own research. Listening to young people is a starting point. But more than this, the work concludes that there is a need for action, results, and accountability. To overlook young people as partners in the recovery from the COVID-19 crisis would be a failure of imagination by the political leaders who are elected to represent them.”
