Connecting You(th) on Water Issues!


The WYN has a simple structure: an advisory board + a core group of active members split into working groups led by coordinators and then we have external partner organisations.

Advisory Board

The advisory board is composed of 5 members elected every two years by the core group of active members. The advisory board supports and facilitates the collaboration of the working groups, lobbies for the network and guides the network in its growth.

Working Groups: Thematic + Support

As of 2017, the following working groups are in place. Each working group defines its own strategy and activities that contribute towards the overall goals of the network and are coordinated with the other working groups. The working groups are led by the coordinator/co-coordinators and are overall guided by the advisory board. The working groups also have one assigned board member to support them in their activities and strategic decision making.
