The youth information service YIOSS, operated by Aġenzija Żgħażagħ provided a platform for young people to share their stories of how the covid-19 pandemic has impacted their lives. These stories also highlighted their resilience and their resourcefulness in these circumstances. The National Youth Policy: Towards 2020 charges Aġenzija Żgħażagħ to implement an action plan to raise awareness, listen to and support young people’s voices. Thus, this project had beenAġenzija Żgħażagħ’s response to enhance young people’s social awareness to enable their voices to be heard on issues that impact their lives.
The project ‘Stories from young people during coronavirus’ encouraged 13 – 30 year olds across Malta and Gozo to inspire other young people and the wider community by sharing their stories; which would be included later on in the collection ‘Memorja’ by the Maltese National Archives.
