Water Youth Movement @ the 6th World Water Forum 

 The vision of all youth at the World Water Forum, structured around 3 pillars (education, crossing boundaries, innovation)

The Youth Vision, which has been presented on Wednesday 14th March, combines the work of all youth initiatives at the 6th World Water Forum in Marseille and focuses on the contributions and commitments of the youth towards the next Forum and other major water related events.

The vision is initiated by the Youth task force of the Forum, the Water Youth Movement. The Water Youth Movement aims to bring together the different youth initiatives at the World Water Forum. Besides, the Water Youth Movement is looking beyond March 17th 2012 towards the next Forum in Daegu, Korea, but also towards other water related events and processes such as Rio+20 and the Stockholm water week, and other water related initiatives of the youth.

We have structured the vision along three interrelated pillars being education, crossing boundaries and innovation, that have emerged from declarations of the youth during the forum. These are areas in which the Youth can have a direct, active, observable and lasting contribution. They also have a direct impact on young people around the world.
