Young Water Solutions’ Director, Antonella Vagliente, was a key-note speaker at the Closing Ceremony of the World Water Week 2018, on August 31st. In her presentation, Antonella shared some examples of Young Water Fellows that apply nature-based solutions (WWW18’s theme) in their social businesses, and emphasized the importance of increasing the financial and technical support to young water entrepreneurs. Youth engagement in water and sanitation solutions should not be only a buzz word, but a common practice backed up by government policies and financial instruments.
