Various programs related to water education, water and culture, and civil society’s major groups such as women, youth, and indigenous people will be included.
Civil organizations will take the lead in efforts to raise awareness about water challenges and seek solutions together. They will provide discussions, lectures, exhibitions, performances, and others.
Their voices and suggestions will be reflected to all programs of the 7th World Water Forum while focusing on the core value of the 7th Forum, ‘implementation.’
Additionally, the Citizen’s Forum is to be designed with a particular focus on the linkage with other processes and synergy among sessions and thematic areas.
Through this exciting forum, it is expected that the Forum’s program will be greatly enriched as a whole and will contribute to enhancing the awareness of the general public on water and their facilitation in the dynamic interactions with other stakeholders in seeking water challenge related solutions together.
