Water ChangeMaker Awards: Meet the Winners

The Masungi Georeserve was announced winners of the Water ChangeMaker Awards in a ceremony at the Climate Adaptation Summit on 25 January. Their project is about restoring forgotten watersheds through youth-led movements. On 4 March the team behind the success joins us for a Facebook Live session to share their experiences.

"The Masungi Georeserve story: Restoring forgotten watersheds through youth-led movements" proved that youth can be effective agents for change in the most difficult and politically sensitive circumstances.

The team’s holistic approach to dealing with ecosystems degradation led to concrete and cooperative actions for the restoration of forests and wetlands, thus preserving biodiversity, improving water quality, and increasing resilience to climate change for generations to come. The quality of their communications and awareness-raising activities is part of what made this collective effort a success.

Billie Dumaliang, Advocacy Officer & Trustee of Masungi Georeserve Foundation, will talk us through the change journey and participation in the WaterChangeMaker Awards and Chris Ilagan, Chair of GWP Philippine, will share his experience in bringing together water and climate in the Philippines.

Welcome to join our Conversation of Change on Thursday 4 March, 10.00 CET: fb.com/globalwaterpartnership
