The world faces severe and growing challenges in maintaining water quality and in meeting
the rapidly growing demand for water resources. As the present young people will be playing central roles in the future, the importance of understanding their views and paving way for their participation is of utmost importance. The involvement of young people in the "think globally, act locally" vision is illustrated here with the case of an international youth movement, the Young Water Action Team (YWAT).
