Welcome to a Nordic webinar covering new research and key learnings on the consequences and lessons to be learned from the pandemic. In the webinar we investigate the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic for children and youth, their wellbeing, and the importance of getting to know how they fare, through execution of their right to be heard and involved in all matters concerning themselves.

You will be given insights into what consequences the pandemic had, and how we can handle a future crisis better. We also dive into some new research on the consequences for young people’s mental health.
