Ongoing Navigate the Youth for Water and Climate Platform

All afternoon, the website will be accessible on a computer for people to try.


13:00 – 15:30 Quality Assurance Lab

During the quality assurance lab, youth project leaders will present their project proposals to a small group of reviewers and discuss in real time with the reviewers their strengths and possible areas for improvement. By applying the YWC approach to supporting project development, the objective is for young entrepreneurs and reviewers to connect around the project proposals and work together on strengthening them.

4 Young Water Fellows will be invited to present their projects to groups of 3 reviewers who will provide feedback using the YWC assessment grid.

15:30 – 16:30 Match-Making for Youth-led Problem Solving

Questions from companies and organizations with a water and climate related problem will be presented. Young leaders will be invited to apply their creativity, innovation, and expertise to propose matching water and climate solutions. The responses can be innovated on the spot or represent a pre-existing project.

Following an initial brainstorm, ideas will be workshopped in smaller groups.
