This is a project for young people across the world. We collect their stories and give them a voice. As the younger generations are often underrepresented, we want to give them a place to tell their hopes, fears and emotions. Especially in these uncertain and challenging times, we are experiencing now with the coronavirus.

Because of the spread of the coronavirus, worldwide schools and stores have been closed, work has come to a halt and lives have been lost. We are living through unprecedented times. With the project “youth voices: corona impact worldwide” we want to document as witnesses, how the youth is dealing with the current situation. The goal is to reach as many young people around the world as possible and capture their stories on video. Through your videos and photos we want to give a voice to the youth and show their marginalized yet highly impactful and important side to global issues. In times of financial and political trouble, it is often forgotten that the younger generations also suffer from the pandemic. We want to give young people a space for all their emotions, worries and hopes.
