Tell us YOUR story! Take part in the Global survey on youth rights and COVID-19


It’s evident that the current pandemic is having serious implications for our societies, but how is affecting you as an individual?

This survey is a joint effort of European Youth Forum, Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth, International Labour Organization, United Nations Human Rights Office, UN Major Group on Children and Youth, and AIESEC.To bring youth voices to the forefront of action and policy responses, this global survey aims to assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on youth rights, with a focus on employment and education.

No matter where you are, no matter what you do! If you are a young person or representing a youth organisation, participate!

The survey takes less than ten minutes and focuses on four main areas:

  • Your job situation or education and how the outbreak has affected it
  • Your psychological well-being and mental health
  • Your engagement in social activism and volunteerism
  • Your opinions on policy responses taken so far and expectations on the role of the authorities.

The survey will allow you and young people across the world to share your own ideas and those of your youth organisations on how to protect the rights of young people during and after the crisis.

Your voice matters and the results of this global survey will be used by our partners and us to guide policy-makers as we navigate these unprecedented times to ensure that young people, their rights, voices and opportunities for education and decent work are protected.

Share the survey with your friends and don’t miss this opportunity to tell us YOUR story.

Get involved! Join the #myvoicemyfuture campaign and tell us how the Covid-19 crisis affected you.
