Highlights World Water Week
Besides the official announcement of the new Gamechanger Challenge the World Water Week was a great success. Right after the announcement we organized our first World Café and during the brainstorm sessions we shaped a vivid blueprint for the new Gamechanger Challenge.
The panel discussion on “Youth Engagement in Global Water Processes: Building an Influential Movement” was a dynamic exchange of insights. A highlight was the discussion around mobilizing youth organizations and defining the key messages that will propel their collective action. Addressing the role of youth in implementing and monitoring the Water Action Agenda was a central point of conversation.
Last but not least we organized an interactive workshop led by Henk Ovink and Prof. Dr. Eddy Moors, which was a great success. Together, we delved into innovative strategies, igniting our passion for the water action agenda and embracing the challenge of the next generation gamechangers.
