The North American Youth Gathering for Water is currently taking place in Quebec City (Laval University). The purpose of this continental meeting is to give 35 youngsters aged 18 to 25 and coming from the Great Lakes, the Saint-Laurent and the Gulf regions the opportunity to expand their knowledge of water-related issues and give them proper tools to become better actors for water. During four days, they will meet with experts, engage in workshops and field activities and participate in the next edition of the International Forum on Integrated Water Management, to be held in Quebec on 7 to 9 May 2014.

Their final objective is to define a clear mandate for the youth representatives of the next World Youth Parliament for Water, that will take place in 2015 in South Korea as part of the 7th World Water Forum.

A summary of the first complete day of the Gathering is already available on the WYPW website. Feel free to check out our website in the coming days for more recaps of the event.
