#CovidUnder19: An initiative to meaningfully involve children in responses to the COVID-19 pandemic

by:

What did we do

How do children experience the pandemic, from one end of the world to the other? To find out, Terre des hommes, in collaboration with the UN and around 30 organisations, as well as children and young people, created the #CovidUnder19 initiative and launched an international survey. The results of the survey reveal the opinions of children and young people, so that their voices can be taken into account by decision-makers.

What did we do

We delivered a comprehensive, multi- and inter-disciplinary assessment of the needs and opportunities for young people in the Cluj metropolitan area, guided by an ecosystem view and oriented towards future initiatives stemming from the results of the assessment. The project will deliver an evidence-informed, tech-enabled repository of data, actors and initiatives in the areas of health and well-being, and education and future of work in the Cluj metropolitan area, with a participatory and inclusive approach. Different aspects of the research and the formulation of policy proposals were provided through participatory mechanisms involving young people and stakeholders, too. Data and proposals are put at the base of future action in the Cluj Metro Area during a 10-year lifespan.

Academics shared their recent research. We reported on what children have told us and sumarised it in a picture.
Some of what we discussed was participatory research by and with children and young people.
