Nordic youth voices – The pandemic and the right to be heard
26 okt 2023
Being heard and involved in all matters that concern them is important for children and youth. In this collection of filmed interviews, youth in the Nordic region give insights into how the pandemic affected them.
In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, it has become evident that most of the measures to prevent the spread of the virus were implemented by decision-makers without consulting or listening to children and youth. This is a violation of children’s rights under Article 12 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Consequently, some of the measures seriously impacted children and youth.
Watch our filmed interviews with youth in the Nordic region. They give insights into how the pandemic affected them, but also talk about how things could have been different. If things had been managed differently, with more influence for the youth, it would have cause them less stress.
