Description

Adolescent Lives: Cross-disciplinary, cross-national and critical perspectives on youth and wellbeing

Co-Hosted by the Centre for Global Youth and the Great Ormond Street Institute for Child Health, University College London

This event will bring together researchers from neuro-science, health sciences, and social sciences to examine a common challenge (how do we ensure the wellbeing of adolescents in diverse contexts?) from different disciplinary perspectives.

To facilitate a cross-disciplinary conversation, we are adopting a broad definition of wellbeing, so that it includes not just physical health or mental health, but also social, political and/or economic wellbeing (and the challenges youth face in attaining these types of wellbeing). Many of these different facets of young lives are interlinked, but their connections are not necessarily fully understood.

Panels and Papers: To capture this diverse range of themes, the programme will include papers on

  • Adolescent physical and mental health

  • The impact of digital technologies

  • Youth politics in times of division and conflict

  • The challenges of researching youth wellbeing

  • Youth attitudes towards their future wellbeing

  • Gender and wellbeing

  • Cross-national differences in wellbeing policies and outcomes.

Registration: This event is free and open to all, but spaces are limited and pre-registration is required. To register, simply RSVP via Eventbrite by 24th November 2017.

This event is sponsored by UCL Grand Challenges Programme (Human Wellbeing strand), the Department of Education, Practice and Society and Great Ormond Street Institute for Child Health.
