Young leaders mobilized for water and peace

Watch the video now. (1:22)
The World Youth Parliament for Water's fourth General Assembly was a success. The 45 youth from 25 countries who gathered in Brasilia showed that they are change makers who are already taking action on local, regional and international levels. With their insight, knowledge and dedication, they proved that they are committed to making a difference.

The ISW organized activities and workshops to help participants hone their communication skills and develop concise messages. At the World Water Forum, the participants then intervened at various high-levels and were able to successfully influence decision makers This group of engaged youth is determined to follow up on this engagement through collaboration and cooperation. 

The participants are now hard at work planning and implementing action in their local communities, and preparing the global network for an awareness campaign on water and peace.

Thank you to all our participants, partners and supporters for an unforgettable and change-making event.
