Prospects for Children and Youth in the Polycrisis

(Past event)

Event type: Webinar

events8 March 2023time15:00 - 16:00 CET

Right now, the world is being confronted by a series of multiple and near-simultaneous shocks amplified by a world that is more interdependent than ever before – and many are calling this phenomenon a “polycrisis”. No matter what it’s called, it will have an enormous impact on children across the world.

At UNICEF, we recently analyzed the trends that we believe will impact children in the future, and they have much to lose. But while those trends are worrying, there are also positive signs.

This webinar will build upon our analysis and unpack some of the most pressing challenges facing children today and will feature thought-provoking contributions not just from sector analysts and experts, but from the very young people who will be most affected by the polycrisis.
