Surveys on the long-lasting impact of the pandemic on young people report a mix of optimism and pessimism. With anxiety over unemployment, education, wellbeing and social opportunities, negativity is understandable. Yet, surveys also highlight a rise in creativity, empathy and gratitude alongside a feeling that a better world can emerge if we aim for a more connected and compassionate global community.
Join the panel to engage with the Class of 2020’s challenges and achievements; and the support required to ensure they are not failed.
Chaired by Bruce Adamson, Commissioner for Children and Young People Scotland, this panel includes:
- Reid Aiton, External Relations Director, Young Scot
- Josh Kennedy MSYP, Scottish Youth Parliament
- David Chukwujekwu, Intercultural Youth Scotland Ambassador
- Cathy McCulloch, Co-Director, Children's Parliament
- Dr Tracy Kirk, lecturer in law, Glasgow Caledonian University
The event is run in partnership with Children and Young People's Commissioner Scotland.
