Young people are being severely hit by the Covid-19 pandemic

Press/Media: Article/Feature


International Youth Day on 12 August provides an opportunity to reflect on the present and future of young people in Australia. The plight of young people in the past provides a window onto present and future challenges that relate to Australians in general. Earlier downturns such as the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) of 2007-8 can help predict key economic and social effects on young people as a result of the current pandemic.
