Empowering youth to make change happen


From 12 to 14 February, 22 Italian students gathered at Villa Colombella (Perugia) to participate to the Winter School on “Water and Climate Change nexus: communicating with images”launched by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) in collaboration with UNESCO WWAP. The aim of the project is to build capacities of Italian students on water resources, as a connecting element to achieve the Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development.

The two-day workshop focused on the theme of the next World Water Development Report 2020 on water and climate change and the acquired knowledge is the basis of a video storyline. A professional video maker worked with the students to find the most appropriate technique to produce the video, which reflects the ideas of the youngest on the challenge posed by climate change on water resources. The video will be projected in the Italian schools on occasion of World Water Day. This incisive mean of awareness reasing will be shared by UNESCO WWAP with all UNESCO Field Office , to disseminate the powerful and strong message of the Italian students on the current challenge the world is facing: climate change

UNESCO WWAP recognizes that empowering young women and men, will helpthem to work together to drive social innovation and change, participate fully in the development of their societies, eradicate poverty and inequality, and foster a culture of peace.
