It’s easy to feel isolated geographically, in our homes but also in our countries, right now. So to mark World Health Day, we are hosting a massive virtual meet up. Through the magic of technology you can travel overseas and connect with other young people to find out how Covid19 is playing out in the lives of young people in different countries around the world. To discover the differences and similarities across locations and share your perspectives on how young people can be part of the solution in stopping the spread.
Restless Development’s Youth Power Panel will be hosting the Solidarity Meetup on Tuesday 7th April. Discover the differences and the similarities across countries and share your perspective on how your government is handling things or how your friends and family are experiencing the pandemic.
The Youth Power Solidarity Meetup is a virtual Meetup that will be hosted using the conference calling software called Zoom. A main host will welcome everyone to the call and then split participants into break out rooms to discuss how Covid19 is impacting them.
