News Mediterranean Water Heroes Youth Contest: Apply Today!

The Issue

Every year on March 22, World Water Day gathers individuals and organizations to collectively reflect on how to create a more water wise world. World Water Day 2017 will explore the theme of wastewater, and how it can be used as a valuable resource to create a more sustainable water future for all. This challenge is especially urgent in the Mediterranean, which counts some of the most water-scarce countries of the planet.
