Youth Flash Newsletter, January 2015

Youth Flash January 2015 New
Focus: This issue of Youth Flash features the article "Water: A key for sustainable development" written by Stefan Knights, a lawyer in training who is currently serving as UNEP's Youth Advisor for Latin America and the Caribbean. The current article reflects on the importance of water and the progress that global movements have made leading up to the final year of the International Water for Life decade. He insists that youth participation is vital for the sustainability of resources such as water and that programs including the Caribbean Youth Environment Network (CYEN) have been very successful in conducting research and educating communities. This issue of the newsletter spotlights the Building Bridges project, an initiative by the current Dutch Youth Delegate Jilt van Schayik and his friend Teun Meulepas in which they will make 25 stops from Spain and Senegal to Nigeria and Namibia. During their journey they will connect with young people on the ground to find out what they want for themselves and for the world in 2030.
