Sobre nosotros

Young Water Solutions es una organización internacional sin fines de lucro que tiene como objetivo desarrollar y apoyar el potencial de lxs* jóvenes para contribuir a la gestión universal del agua, de los servicios de saneamiento, la higiene y la gestión integral de los recursos hídricos. Para conseguirlo, empoderamos a jóvenes líderes y emprendedorxs, proporcionándoles las herramientas necesarias para llevar a cabo proyectos sobre agua y saneamiento y lanzar empresas sociales en sus comunidades. Promovemos un enfoque integrado y apoyamos iniciativas que aborden desafíos integrales, como la adaptación al cambio climático, la reforestación, el empleo juvenil, la igualdad de género y la seguridad alimentaria.

Con sede en Bruselas, Young Water Solutions fue fundada en 2015 por 16 profesionales del agua (júnior y senior), procedentes de 11 países diferentes,

pero con una visión en común: un mundo en el que lxs jóvenes contribuyen a hacer del acceso al agua potable y al saneamiento una realidad cotidiana para todos los pueblos de la Tierra.

Nuestra misión es hacer una contribución efectiva y extensible a los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible (ODS), empoderando a jóvenes para que implementen soluciones a los problemas de agua en sus comunidades. De cara a 2030, aspiramos a trabajar con más de 1.000 jóvenes líderes, entre los que se incluirán al menos 500 mujeres para que apliquen soluciones de agua en sus comunidades, de modo que al menos 1 millón de personas puedan contar con agua potable y saneamiento y disfrutar de una vida digna.
