Connecting water & climate youth initiatives
to technical & financial resources

YWC is a place to help turn youth ideas into reality. We provide tools to improve projects and help youth leaders match and connect their initiatives with partners and resources.

“The YWC platform is not only a springboard for initiatives of young people but also a meeting place of partners for the realization of these ideas. In short, the YWC platform is ideas, actions and experiences with and by young people.”
