These important points emerged at the conference "Will everything be fine? The consequences of the pandemic for children and young people in the Nordic region". The main points from the conference are collected in the report "Young. Strong. Vulnerable." The report is written in Norwegian, Danish and Swedish.
The conference was organised by the Research Council of Norway and NordForsk, with support from the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research, and was part of the programme for Norway's Presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers.
At the conference, representatives of children and young people, authorities and researchers met in conversations about how the pandemic has affected children and young people's mental health, living conditions as well as school and education.
An important objective was to elicit young people's views on how the pandemic affected them and their peers: What did they themselves think about the consequences of the pandemic, and what is needed to help young people after the pandemic?
The report contains short summaries of all talks, and links to video of the talks.
