How are children doing under lockdown #Covid19?
18th June 2020
Drawing on guidance from Global Kids Online, the #CovidUnder19 project invites views from children around the world by launching a global survey for 8-17 year old’s to get their views and experiences of ‘Life under Coronavirus’. The findings will tell us how children have been coping during the pandemic and will be used for advocacy globally to ensure children’s voices are included in the response to COVID-19 and future emergency and crisis situations. If you are aged between 8 and 17 years, please help us by completing our survey.
