We’re inviting young people between the ages of 12 and 21 to discuss the issues being tackled by world leaders at the Rio+20 Summit. Meet Rio delegates and tell them what kind of future you want.

What’s the topic?

Water... 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered in it. Yet every year millions of people, most of them children, die as they don’t have access to fresh water. Our food, sanitation, industry and energy all depend on fresh water. Shortages of this vital resource damage economies and people’s lives.

Without action, by 2050 one in four people will be affected by shortages of fresh water. Is this your vision of the future?

In partnership with Defra, UNICEF UK and the British Youth Council
