It has been almost a year since Covid-19 emerged and it is still hitting humanity very hard. Unfortunately as predicted, young workers have not been able to escape and they are strongly affected by the situation. They are experiencing the impact and consequences of the pandemic in their daily lives, in their social life, in their families and at work.
Taking this reality into account, the IYCW carried out a survey and collected testimonies from young workers around the world. The International YCW wants to share that information and those realities and will therefore organize a webinar on the impact of Covid-19 on young workers’ reality on December 12, 2020 at 2:00pm (CET-Brussels time).
The panelists for this webinar are from Africa, Asia, the Americas and Europe, and they will share their analysis on the impact that the measures implemented after the surge of Covid-19 around the world have on young workers’ reality. There will be young activists of the International YCW, a representative of a Belgian social movement (WSM), the Deputy Director of the Bureau for Workers’ Activities (ACTRAV/ILO), as well as the former International YCW president (2000-2004) who fights for social rights in Quebec.
Our aim is
- To raise public awareness about how young workers have been affected by this global pandemic and about the impact of the measures implemented by the states on their lives;
- To give visibility to the actions carried out by young workers as an alternative to face the measures against Covid-19, as well as their demands to improve their living and working conditions.
