The u’GOOD research programme is a multilateral, multi-partner, and multi-year partnership that seeks to accelerate research into the wellbeing of young people, particularly those who live in the Global South. More specifically, it seeks to draw on the recent exciting insights and advances in scholarship on relational wellbeing. The programme will fund research projects that seek to understand the wellbeing of young people using four thematic areas as lenses: livelihoods, mental health, climate change and digitalisation. It targets participation of 12 countries, viz. Colombia, Ecuador, Egypt, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Morocco, Romania, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania, and Vietnam.
