The World Water Forum (http://www.worldwaterforum6.org/en/) kicked off today in Marseille, France.

The World Water Forum mobilizes creativity, innovation, competence and know-how in favour of water. Young people are using http://wateryouthmovement.org/ to discuss possible solutions. The UNCSD Major Group of Children and Youth team that are working on drafting our vision of the SDG for Water are also here and the vibe is so fun, professional, solutions orientated and the momentum is building.

Discussion about the world?s water challenges and possible solutions are starting now. Professionals are gathered by the organisation of the Forum and are already discussing several topics in preparatory committees. These committees are set up to examine how to bring ?solutions to water, based on openness and exchange?.

The 6th World Water Forum also wishes to involve local stakeholders trhough its Grassroots and citizienship process, to which the Youth Initiatives Task Force belongs.
