Intending to scout out real and measurable impacts inflicted by the Corona induced shutdown on the lives of youths, the largest populace of the country, Young Bangla, the youth platform under the auspices of Centre for Research and Information (CRI), hosted the second online edition of ‘Let’s Talk on Post Covid-19 Youth Development’ on 21 May 2020. Spanning around 120 minutes, the discussion drew insights from a wide-ranging panel – from parliamentarians to academicians to researchers to social workers to practitioners to students’ representatives and youths working on an individual capacity to change the course of their community. As the episode kept advancing, it paved the path for practical insights on the concerns and challenges, which require attention from the policymakers, facing the youths in their education, workplace, career, and personal lives. On the other hand, first-hand insights from the young achievers on their voluntary community work also came up.
