UN World Water day is celebrated every year on 22nd March!

This year, the WISA YWP’s has decided to align with this celebration and host an online symposium series over the month of March, under the theme of Making the Invisible Visible.
Why do we think that this is important? Because the youth in our water sector have been invisible for too long. Come and join us virtually and be part of a program that puts the youth at the center.
