Youth Day Challenge

Join the #YouthAgainstCOVID19 conversation!

UNFPA teamed up with Prezi to help teach young people around the world about COVID-19 and what they can do to keep their friends, families, and communities safe.

Young people around the world have been impacted by COVID-19, but have taken an essential role in leading the charge against the pandemic.

 
 
 
 

This International Youth Day, we want to hear young people’s voices.

As the #YouthAgainstCOVID19 conversation continues to grow, we want to hear young people speak about how they have been affected and the role this generation will take on in building and becoming leaders in the post-COVID19 ‘new normal’.
