Launched at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, UNESCO’s “Youth As Researchers on COVID-19” (YAR) is a signature global youth-led research initiative that consolidates evidence from youth across the world on their experiences of, and impactful action during, the global COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to contributing with youth perspectives to inform policy decisions, the goal of the initiative is to promote evidence-based policy- making, and to counter disinformation.
