#VAXXTIME is an One Young World Ambassador initiative and youth-driven global mass media virtual campaign to spread awareness and make youth voices heard far and wide, calling together for:
1) vaccine equity
2) vaccine uptake
3) curbing of misinformation
We are at a critical juncture within the pandemic. Where vaccines are being rolled out, vaccine hesitancy is on the rise and needs to be curbed. Furthermore, this situation is compounded by misinformation which is widely disseminated and threatens vaccine rollouts and other public health measures aimed at curbing transmission.
Platforms for Youth Voices
The youth voice has largely been missing from the pandemic landscape, yet we know that youth are powerful, dynamic, creative and play a critical role in utilising their voices for advocacy. As leaders of today and tomorrow a collection of youth voices has potential to ignite collaborations, innovate and even galvanize public and stakeholders in realising these challenges.
The idea is to create, inspire and manage the largest collection of diverse youth voices which the world has ever seen to raise their voices during the COVID-19 pandemic, collectively causing decision-makers to ‘sit up and listen’ and spark further campaigns and action.
- The plan is for #VaxxTime to trend, ultimately increasing confidence in vaccines, and tackling vaccine inequity
