Survey on COVID-19 Sources of Information and Guidance


Recently UNESCO GAPMIL Youth joined Global Shapers, the International Federation of Medical Students' Association (IFMSA) and the #MoreViralThanTheVirus movement, to elaborate and share a short survey that has been created to gather input from youth around the world on:


a) COVID-19 sources of information and guidance
b) Current attitudes about the pandemic


It takes less than 5 minutes to answer and is anonymous. The results of this survey will be collected, analysed, made accessible and will be used for the purposes of a youth report that is planned to be released on International Youth Day on 12th August 2020.


The results of this survey will be shared in the form of a youth report in collaboration with the World Health Organization and technical support by UNESCO. We hope the outcomes bring us understanding to better deliver information for youth in the future and to act on current fears and concerns that youth may have about the pandemic.  

We count on your collaboration to share this link:

with your networks and call the youth around the world to help us to understand infodemic and disinformation cycles regarding COVID-19. 

The results of this survey may also feed into future studies by other organizations and institutions. If you have any queries with regards to this survey, please contact Beatrice Bonami <>



Thank you so much.

Concerning the saying: "madia may not be successful in telling us what to think, but they are stunningly successful in telling us what to think about".
Could you please tell me how should I develop my essay and the elements that I should include in the bo

Dr. CHOUIT 27.12.2019 18:59

The media are successful in telling us what to think about refers to the Agenda-Setting Theory of the Press and to News Values. You should also address the implications of News Agenda Settings.

Dr. CHOUIT 27.12.2019 18:52

1. You should explain the second element of the statement "what to think about": News Agenda Setting based on News Values.
2. You should explain the first element of the statement: The media are not successful in telling us "what to think."
