The World Youth Parliament for Water has launched a new web platform (www.youthforwater.org), showcasing members of Youth Parliaments for Water around the world, their actions and success stories.
World Youth Parliament for Water is a network of passionate young people from over 80 countries. It responds to the interests of youth, working together to prioritize water issues and create platforms for the expertise of youth to be recognized on these issues. In doing so, its supports youth-led water projects at community level or youth advocacy in international forums.
The new site includes an interactive map to help visualise the global extent of the Parliaments, and local chapters are invited to adopt new global branding in order to unify these world communities and reinforce the Parliaments’ impacts.
Sarah Dousse, Executive Director, International Secretariat for Water said “The World Youth Parliament for Water - initiated by the International Secretariat for Water in 2002 - catalyses the voices and actions of more than 15,000 young people. Its strength lies in its local roots - with more than 30 local chapters - from Sudan to Pakistan to Peru. We are confident that this website will serve to increase the #Youth4Water connectivity.”
