COVID-19 and Young Australians: The long-term effects of a Pandemic

How will COVID-19 impact the education and employment trajectories of young people? Historically, economic downturns have had lifelong consequences for happiness, life satisfaction and lifetime earnings.

Dr Jenny Chesters from the Melbourne Graduate Research School of Education joins Distinguished Professor Stewart Lockie, Director of the JCU Cairns Institute, for this special webinar to celebrate Social Sciences week (7-13 September).

Jenny will draw on extensive data to understand the experiences of previous generations, explain how Australia can avoid the worst-case scenario and explore how young people can build a brighter future.
