Every three years, young talented people from all over the world are gathered to work together, shaping, and sharing youth perspectives for a more peaceful, sustainable and water-secure future. This is an opportunity to renew the membership of the network, elect new representatives and develop an action plan for the following three years.

The General Assembly of the World Youth Parliament for Water is an opportunity to develop advocacy messages, concrete initiatives and synergies with other members, to work with experts, to discover different cultures and to develop new friendships.

The past editions of the World Youth Parliament for Water (WYPW) General Assembly (2012, 2015, 2018 & 2022) were held during the World Water Forum and allowed for hundreds of youth from all over the world to expand their knowledge regarding water, develop essential skills, grow their network and advocate for proper youth representation.

For this 6th edition, the International Secretariat for Water (ISW) and the WYPW will host the General Assembly in Bali, Indonesia, to be held before and during the 10th World Water Forum, from May 14th – 24th 2024.

During these 10 days (4 days before the WWForum and 6 days during the Forum). 60+ committed youth will be selected for in-person participation. They will have the chance to participate in training sessions given by inspiring professionals, to exchange with their peers from around the world, and most importantly, to bring the voice of youth for water to decision-makers to foster the implementation of rapid change. Youth are thirsty for action and change.
