Sobre nosotros

Young Water Solutions es una organizaci贸n internacional sin fines de lucro que tiene como objetivo desarrollar y apoyar el potencial de lxs* j贸venes para contribuir a la gesti贸n universal del agua, de los servicios de saneamiento, la higiene y la gesti贸n integral de los recursos h铆dricos. Para conseguirlo, empoderamos a j贸venes l铆deres y emprendedorxs, proporcion谩ndoles 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 desaf铆os integrales, como la adaptaci贸n al cambio clim谩tico, la reforestaci贸n, el empleo juvenil, la igualdad de g茅nero y la seguridad alimentaria.

Con sede en Bruselas, Young Water Solutions fue fundada en 2015 por 16 profesionales del agua (j煤nior y senior), procedentes de 11 pa铆ses diferentes,

pero con una visi贸n en com煤n: un mundo en el que lxs j贸venes contribuyen a hacer del acceso al agua potable y al saneamiento una realidad cotidiana para todos los pueblos de la Tierra.

Nuestra misi贸n es hacer una contribuci贸n efectiva y extensible a los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible (ODS), empoderando a j贸venes para que implementen soluciones a los problemas de agua en sus comunidades. De cara a 2030, aspiramos a trabajar con m谩s de 1.000 j贸venes l铆deres, entre los que se incluir谩n al menos 500 mujeres para que apliquen soluciones de agua en sus comunidades, de modo que al menos 1 mill贸n de personas puedan contar con agua potable y saneamiento y disfrutar de una vida digna.

* En nuestra p谩gina web se utiliza lenguaje no sexista, aplicando el recurso gramatical de la letra 鈥渪鈥 en sus textos, a fin de eliminar diferencias sexuales en la lengua y reflejar inclusi贸n gen茅rica, haciendo visible lo femenino y otras identidades no hegem贸nicas.
