Blir alt bra? Pandemiens konsekvenser for barn og unge i Norden

Welcome to conference on the pandemic's consequences for children and young people in the Nordics

  • Time: Thursday, November 10, 11.00 a.m. to 3.30 p.m.
  • Place: Doga, Oslo

The researchers are already well underway in investigating the various ways in which the pandemic has affected the lives of children and young people. At the same time, there is still much we do not know, and a great need to keep up with the long-term development.

At the conference, you will meet representatives of children and young people, authorities and researchers in conversations about how the pandemic has affected children and young people's mental health, living conditions, and school and education.

An important goal is to elicit young people's views on how the pandemic has affected them and their peers: What do they themselves think about the consequences of the pandemic, and what will it take to help young people in the best possible way?
