#WaterGeneration Grants: Supporting innovative youth projects

What does Water and Peace look like to your community? And how can you make a real difference?

With #WaterGeneration Grants, SWE will provide European youth with the tools to develop and implement innovative and creative projects based on the theme of the 14th European Youth Parliament for Water, Water and Peace. European nationals who previously attended any previous European Youth Parliament for Water, as well as other national or regional water parliaments and events, are welcome to apply. We are looking for original, high-quality projects that accomplish two main goals:

  • Growing and strengthening youth participation in the cause of water.
  • Contributing to positive and lasting change in the areas of water supply, sanitation and water resource management.
