Dear <<First Name – Prénom>>,

Today in Burkina Faso's capital, youth from ten French-speaking African countries will mobilize for four days of workshops and activities. #WaterGeneration Meetup gathers youth passionate about water so they can learn, mobilize and speak out about the region's challenges. On the closing day, they will draft and present a Youth Vision for Water, a collective document expressing the commitment of African youth. The Vision will be presented to Burkina Faso's Minister of Water at the closing ceremony, and shared at the 8th World Water Forum in Brasilia next March. It is our great pleasure to organize this meetup, and we thank our many partners for their indispensable support.

The Youth Visions for Water

Throughout 2017, the International Secretariat for Water—Solidarity Water Europe group brought together youth of the world with a passion for water. Events took place in Central Asia, Europe and North America. Participants developed collective Visions all leading to the goals of the World Youth Parliament for Water's General Assembly, the global youth network meeting alongside the World Water Forum. The WYPW is an ISW initiative now entering its sixteenth year. As the final preparatory event of 2017, #WaterGeneration Meetup – Ouagadougou will bring the voices of African youth to the forefront and cement the foundations of a global youth vision for water.

Thanks to our partners
