Thirty students from the Lycée Paul Eluard of Châtillon in France will demonstrate the UNESCO Water experiments during the Official Launching Ceremony of the International Year of Water Cooperation on 11 February 2013.
Five of these students will also participate in the Youth meeting at the Pavillon de l'eau. Together with students from Japan, other schools in France and from UNESCO-IHE (UNESCO Institute for Water Education, The Netherlands), they will finalize a Youth Declaration on water cooperation, which they will present to the participants of the high-level meeting as they join them at the Pavillon.

UNESCO's hands on pedagogical Experiments gives primary, secondary and tertiary students the opportunity to conduct practical work in physics, chemistry and biology, using small kits that come with pedagogical materials. These kits are veritable micro-laboratories, are cost effective and safe in so far as students never need to use more than a couple of drops of chemicals for each experiment. The kits are also affordable and far cheaper than conventional laboratory equipment and materials. The small quantities of chemicals used make the methodology environmentally sound.
