Let YOUth voice be heard

The survey targets young people from all regions, countries, and backgrounds; those actively engaged in economic activities across sectors and industries; as well as those that are in school and those not in employment, education and training (NEET). The survey results will be shared widely to help inform ILO constituents and Decent Jobs for Youth partners as youth navigate these unprecedented times with a profound commitment to protect young people, their rights, voices and opportunities for decent work.

Four main areas:

- how the outbreak affects young people’s employment and learning situation and aspirations

- effects on psychological well-being and mental health

- young people’s engagement in social activism and volunteerism

- young people's opinions on policy responses taken so far and expectations on the role of the authorities. This includes youth's own proposals, or those of the organizations that represent youth, on how to protect the labour market prospects of young people during and after the crisis.
