129. Ms. Rogojînaru (Romania), speaking as a youth delegate, in a pre-recorded video statement, said that the lack of human interaction and the overwhelming information about the dangers of the COVID-19 pandemic had affected the mental health of young people in Romania. The pandemic had also hindered their access to quality education, thereby preventing the accomplishment of Sustainable Development Goal 4. Moreover, they faced problems related to gender inequality, increased domestic violence, discrimination, unemployment and hate speech. [*16*]

Mr. Zvîncă (Romania), speaking as a youth delegate, in a pre-recorded video statement, said that young people had adapted to the pandemic situation and demonstrated the utmost solidarity and inclusivity by volunteering – caring for vulnerable people, organizing vaccination campaigns and promoting solutions for building resilience.

In that connection, the youth of Romania stood ready to contribute to the work of the Human Rights Council.
