We are happy the Dutch government listened to our request to re-open the high schools per the 2nd of March. We have lobbyed for this as we received disturbing messages from the Dutch youth over the past weeks.
Half of the young people told us they felt lonely. And young people are more likely to feel sad or angry since the high schools closed. Cases of eating disorders and anxiety are signs that our teens are not doing well.
We are glad that the cabinet took action and will re-open the secondary schools starting next week.
