On Thursday 17 September at 15:00 CET | 09:00 EST, UNICEF Office of Research-Innocenti will present its sixth Leading Minds Online webcast ‘What the Experts Say - Coronavirus and Children' on Economic Impact.
Just in Europe and North America alone some 90 million full-time jobs were lost in the second quarter, according to the ILO. The COVID-recession not only threatens to erode global development, but is predicted to have a broader and deeper impact than the 2008 financial crisis as it hits both supply and demand chains as well as informal sectors across Africa and South Asia. But does it have to be as bad as it seems? In our next Leading Minds Online, we ask a panel of experts where the economy stands now, what lies ahead and how do we make the best of the worst that is to come for children and young people.
WHEN: Thursday 17 SEPTEMBER 15:00 CEST | 9:00 EST
