World Youth Parliament for Water 5th General Assembly – Call for participation

Join the wave and become an ACTOR OF CHANGE!

The International Secretariat for Water (ISW) and the World Youth Parliament for Water (WYPW) are excited to launch the call for participation for the second part of the WYPW 5th General Assembly. This event will be held physically in the frame of the 9th World Water Forum (WWForum) taking place in Dakar, Senegal.

The WYPW 5th General Assembly – labelled official event of the 9th World Water Forum.

For this 5th edition, the International Secretariat for Water (ISW) – which is at the origin of the Youth Parliaments for Water – and the WYPW decided to present a new and innovative format to maximize the impact of the event and youth engagement while ensuring the health and safety of all participants. The General Assembly has been designed in a bimodal program combining an online event (which took place on March 2021) and in-person activities (planned for March 2022). Learn more about the first part of the 5th General Assembly here.

The second part of the GA is planned to be held before and during the 9th WWForum – 16th to 25th of March 2022 – in Senegal. During these 10 days (5 days before the WWForum and 5 days during the Forum), +60 committed youth will be selected for in-person participation. They will have the chance to participate in training sessions given by inspiring professionals, to exchange with their peers from around the world, and most importantly, to bring the voice of youth for water to decision-makers for rapid change. Youth are thirsty for action and change.

Under the umbrella of the Forum’s thematic “Water Security for Peace and Development”, the participants will have the opportunity to:

    • Learn from peers and take part in interactive and engaging workshops.
    • Discover Senegalese water issues and culture via field visits and activities with local communities.
    • Meet with inspiring and high-level experts and other young water leaders.
    • Influence the water governance by contributing to the 9th WWForum processes and bring the youth voices in the Head of State Conference.
    • Present youth perspectives and priorities during sessions and side events of the 9th WWForum.
    • Shape a strong and unified #WaterGeneration.

We invite all young people interested or active in the water sector to apply!  Learn more about this call to participate and apply here.
