What is next for Syria’s children? The impact of a decade of war in Syria and neighbouring countries

11/03/2021 - 09:40

The event will explore the costs of the conflict and associated consequences (both immediate and longer-term) for children and communities.

The event will unpack the current needs of Syrian children, adolescents and young people, and the next steps to address these if we are not to lose another generation. First, we will hear the voices from young people themselves, giving them the space to share their own perspectives, dreams and fears. We will then draw on the evidence of our No Lost Generation members and leadership of specialist agencies in the areas of: access to quality education, addressing harmful coping mechanisms, transition from education to employment and mental wellbeing.

The event will enable key stakeholders including States and donors working in response to the Syria crisis to critically engage with both harrowing and important findings and recommendations essential to any decision-making process, both regarding the current conflict situation, and the potential future post-conflict era.
