Youth Participation in WASH: Essential for a Sustainable Future

Water is an essential component of sustainable development, having a crucial role in human well-being, socio-economic growth and the health of the environment and ecosystems.

Agenda 2030 lays out a clear path and vision for a sustainable future, and has received unprecedented support across governments, civil society, businesses and citizens alike. Global challenges - ranging from climate change, water and food crises, to poverty, conflict and inequality - more than ever are in need of solutions that young people can deliver.

Happy International Youth Day!

Within the development sector, we talk about reaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030 on a daily basis. What we often forget is that reaching these goals provides an equal, cleaner and more sustainable world for future generations. It is noticeable that youth groups and activists are extremely passionate and enthusiastic about reaching the SDGs and are regularly finding innovative and creative ways to reach these goals.
