The World Youth Parliament for Water was everywhere! Members were in 8+ Presentations, convened discussions, and had a role as Senior Rapporteur. 

Some Highlights:
Sessions We Co-Convened
Intergenerational Dialogues
It is through sustained dialogue between and across generations that solutions for SDGs can be identified and implemented.  
  • Join the Youth for the World Water Forum “Dakar 2021”
    • 9th World Water Forum framework and  preparatory process, including World Café Discussions around the themes of Water Security, Cooperation, Tools and Means and WASH. The World Youth Parliament for Water will be leading the theme of Cooperation and is working with the Youth Steering Committee of the 9th World Water Forum to ensure full regional representation of youth in the preparation for the forum.
  • Intergenerational Dialogue for Water and Peace: Launch of the Water Diplomat
    • OOSKAnews and the Geneva Water Hub launched a new hydrodiplomacy news source following a dynamic discussion between young and senior professionals on the emerging humanitarian and diplomatic implications of water in a changing world.
  • How can intergenerational dialogue facilitate youth inclusion in decision making? 
    • The dynamic session featured intergenerational dialogues asking hard questions about what is needed to reform decision making in the water sector and promote youth inclusion. Policy and decision making processes in the water sector urgently need to make space for youth engagement as youth voices, actions and solutions are essential to achieve the SDGs.

Committed to Civil Society and Youth
Annual Report 2018 ISW / SEE

The report lists our major achievements with the support of our partners during the year 2018.

In order to tackle water-related challenges, sustainable and inclusive governance needs to be put in place that is able to respond to the needs of a growing population, the resulting water stress, and the risk of tensions arising from lack of clarity around resource sharing. Our commitment remains to supporting the transition towards a more equitable society, to safeguarding vital resources such as water, and to preserving peace.
