Taking care of mental health while living in the new normal will be broadcast live via the Webex Platform on the Envoy on Youth’s YouTube Channel. The session will focus on young people’s experiences and feelings of fear, anxiety, anger, sadness and grief due to the impacts of COVID-19.

Virtual event hosted by the Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth, the Special Advisor on UN75 and Digital Cooperation and the UN Major Group for Children and Youth
This event aims at convening a discussion with digital natives on the topic, and promote the need to be constructive and hopeful during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, to channel young people’s spirit, creativity and innovation towards a solution-oriented conversation. In particular, we want to convene a dynamic and interactive program to address the role young people must play in advancing digital cooperation for the Sustainable Development Agenda, especially in times of crisis and uncertainty.
