This summary report presents key messages that young people have identified as key experiences and priority concerns during the pandemic since November 2020. These are drawn from the seven research groups across Italy, Singapore, Lebanon, and the UK home nations that have been undertaking their own youth-led research during the pandemic with a focus on the second lockdown. Recommendations put forward by young people are provided at the end of the report.
During this phase of the project young people have been reflecting on their ongoing experiences through journaling, keeping diaries, interviewing family and peers, surveying key workers, writing podcast scripts, producing illustrations, and making presentations. A key focus has been on communicating and acting on their research findings. In this interim report, we focus on key issues that have emerged from young people’s research.
