Time: 10:00 - 12:00
Venue: Online (Zoom)
COVID-19 has resulted in dramatic loss of life, economic recession, educational challenges, mental ill-health, relational difficulties, uncertainty and an overall negative impact on people’s wellbeing. The effect of the pandemic is now being researched both locally and worldwide.
The 2021 Faculty for Social Wellbeing Seminar addresses the pressing concern of how Covid-19 is being experienced across varying life stages, the common trends that present themselves and how age and developmental status intersect with a number of structural variables to make the impact of Covid-19 unique.
Through a combination of brief evidence-based presentations, followed by reactions from experts and group discussion, the Faculty positions itself at the forefront of addressing this challenge that will continue to impact the wellbeing of Maltese society, and thus ensuring that the response to the crisis is equitable even for the most vulnerable in our society.
