To bring youth voices to the forefront of action and policy responses, the Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth and its partners including the International Labour Organization, the UN Major Group for Children and Youth, AIESEC, the European Youth Forum, the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa and the United Nations Human Rights Office are conducting a global survey on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on youth rights, with a focus on employment and education.
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 governments, employers and workers organizations, and Decent Jobs for Youth partners as they navigate these unprecedented times with a profound commitment to protect young people, their rights, voices and opportunities for decent work. The survey ends on 21 May 2020.
Please help us in distributing the survey to your young members and representatives as well as relevant networks. You can distribute through the following channels:
The survey will also be available in Swahili in the course of the week.
