What is this?

This learning activity will help young people to think about what it means to be responsible citizens during these uncertain times. It is designed to help young people reflect on how they develop respect for others and themselves.  

How are other people feeling?

People all over the world are experiencing the impact of the COVID pandemic in different ways.

Today’s activity is for you to be a reporter for an online news source. You have been asked to find out what young people’s experiences in different countries have been in recent weeks. 

You have been asked to create five questions to find out what support young people who are aged between 12 and 14 want.
