The organising committee of Féile na gCloigíní Gorma, the unique community health and wellbeing festival based in the Upper Springfield, have organised this important panel discussion to give local community and youth workers an opportunity to reflect on the needs, hopes and fears of young people at this time of global health crisis. The panel will be made up of local community based youth workers and activists who have been forced to adapt their practices over the last 3 months to meet the needs of young people while adhering to social distance guidelines and isolated working practices. The panel will reflect on the impact of the Covid-19 lockdown on the lives of young people from the most disadvantaged communities, while exploring the challenges this has had for workers on the ground. The panel will conclude by exploring what’s next for young people, how will Covid-19 continue to impact on their lives over the next 12 months and how can government and community activists realistically respond to these challenges?
