During the pandemic young people’s well-being have been a primary concern. At the NYRIS Webinar 2021 we will address this topic from a Nordic youth research perspective. The Nordic countries have reacted to the COVID-19 pandemic with measures such as social distancing, home schooling and restricted leisure activities. A primary concern has been for young people’s well-being.
How did youth experience the restrictions during the pandemic? How did they respond? What can Nordic youth research tell us about the consequences of the pandemic on young peoples lives?
These are some of the questions we address at the NYRIS Webinar 2021!
We have invited some prominent Nordic youth researchers to discuss young people’s situation in their respective countries during the pandemic.
