MORE than 73 per cent of young people are concerned about the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on their future, according to the British Science Association (BSA).

Young people in Yorkshire and Humberside, aged 14 to 18 years old, have expressed concerns about future careers, mental health and well- being in a recent survey.

The BSA is calling on the government to address the fears that young people have, and to ensure that they are not left out of the coronavirus conversation.

“Unless lessons are learned from the last lockdown, we risk alienating a whole generation of young people from our politics, our science and how they interweave with wider society,” said Katherine Mathieson, chief executive of BSA.
