Press/Media: Blogs and social media

Release date: 27/10/2020

Description

The global pandemic of 2020 has had a huge impact on the lives of millions of citizens around the world, with research showing that children and young people (CYP) have been the most severely affected. Here in the UK and beyond, governments and policymakers are expressing their determination to ‘build back better’ after COVID-19, while also asking populations to act collectively for the common good. In this blog, Dr Deborah Ralls, from the Manchester Institute of Education and the Manchester Urban Institute, suggests it is essential that any attempts to ‘build back better’ adopt a collective approach, which includes CYP as key stakeholders in core urban decision-making processes.
