#Undi18 x REFSA: POST-COVID-19: WHAT LIES AHEAD FOR MALAYSIAN YOUTHS? 🌱

Description
The COVID-19 cohort, like the 2008 Global Financial Crisis cohort before them, will have to contend with a challenging start to their career as the economic outlook is set to look bleak. Already, Malaysian youths are faced with acute job search and huge financial stress, with the rising cost of living, depressed wages, burdensome student loans, which will be accentuated with COVID-19. This could lead to other “knock-on effects” such as depression, delay in setting up a family, and poorer health.

The nature of education, work, and businesses will change for some time to come, for better or for worse. Thus, it will be important to understand how these changes will take place so that we are better able to adjust to the “new normal”. Given that the economic impact of COVID-19 will be felt over a considerable period, the government must also be prepared to reorient policies accordingly, so that this generation of youth is not left behind.

What kind of future lies ahead for Malaysian youths post-COVID-19? With the future job market looking to be tough, what alternatives do the youths have? What kind of policies should youths demand to help ease the transition into this new economic outlook? These are the questions that this webinar will hopefully provide answers to.
