The young parliamentarians for water need your help!

The next World Water Forum is now fast approaching, and with it the third assembly of the World Youth Parliament for Water. A hundred young people are preparing to represent each of their respective countries to bring their voice in the discussions that will take place during this great event, scheduled from 5 to 17 April 2015 in South Korea.

If on-site accommodation and registration costs are supported by the International Secretariat for Water, the young participants must first succeed in getting financial support from a sponsor to pay for their plane ticket to South Korea. Unfortunately, a few of them still do not have a sponsor to date, and therefore need you to help them realize their dream!

Therefore, a page has been created on crowdfunding platform Indiegogo, where you can learn more about the involvement of these young people and how they will also be able to add their voices to the negotiations during the World Water Forum. All the WYPW team and the International Secretariat for Water thank you in advance for your generous contribution. Together, let's make access to water and sanitation a crucial part of the new development goals.
