The Youth Prize Contest The Water We Want aims at engaging young people as narrators of our cultural and natural water heritage and storytellers of our liquid futures
The youth prize contest The Water We Want aims at engaging young people as narrators of our multifaceted water heritage and storytellers of more sustainable water futures.How can we change the mindset of people and inspire new behaviours and attitudes to be more respectful of nature and promote better water uses? What daily actions can we make to protect the increasingly scarce water resources we depend upon, and implement the SDGs? And what can we learn from our inherited water assets and values to look for new solutions and foster the green recovery that will save our planet? This contest calls on young generations worldwide to explore creatively the crucial importance of any form of water heritage, both natural and cultural, tangible and intangible. The contest is addressed to schools, learning institutions and civil society organizations worldwide. All entries are to be submitted involving the members of the Global Network of Water Museums. After the 1st edition of the contest (2020), a communication campaign was implemented with 22 professional videos aimed at promoting the SDGs and more sustainable water uses.
