Youth leadership in building a new normal this new year

The Amplify Youth Voices project is launching #HappyYouthYear,
a week-long online campaign on youth and activism.

From January 11th to January 15th 2021, a series of multimedia products
will be released as a
three-part online action.

This week of action marks the end of the Amplify project and the beginning of a new year
where we hope youth are front and centre.
