The specific objectives of the Youth Parliament are:
to familiarize the youth with the integrated planning, regulation, use and protection of water resources at basin level, and to allow discussion on current and future priorities regarding the use and protection of water resources and understand their vision of possible solutions.
The initial activities have been strongly welcomed and supported by the countries’ representatives – both by ISRBC and by ministers at the 4th Meeting of the Parties to the FASRB (Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, May 31, 2013).
Until now, four meetings of the Youth Parliament have been organized. The main outcomes include:
- Declaration on Sustainable Development of the Sava River Basin (adopted on the first meeting, held in Lonjsko Polje Nature Park, Croatia, on June 1-2, 2012) (http://www.savacommission.org/event_detail/0/0/265/20)
