For this year’s International Youth Day on 12 August 2018, the UN Special Rapporteur on the human rights to safe drinking water and sanitation, Mr. Léo Heller, is organizing an online challenge to raise awareness among the youth about the human rights to water and sanitation.

The participants can show their knowledge, understanding, and passion about the human rights to water and sanitation by creating an original submission about the human rights to water and sanitation and upload it to a social media network (Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter).

All persons between the ages of 15 and 24 years, as of 12 August 2018, can participate. The UN Special Rapporteur will choose a submission that demonstrates an excellent understanding of the

human rights to water and sanitation and that clearly expresses what the human rights to water and

sanitation mean to youth.

The deadline for submissions is 6 August 2018 and the winner will be announced on International Youth Day (12 August). You can click here for submission details.
