Seeking Collaboration with young scientists under 35-Proposal for youth for water and climate of GWP

Hello, My name is Konstantina Pyrgaki and I am a PhD student in the fields of Environmental geochemistry ,hydrogeochemistry-groundwater quality and water management at the Department of Geology of the University of Athens and I am working also as a research associate at the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas. I am really interested in  submitting a proposal under the call of Youth for Water and Climate of GWP ( https://youthwaterclimate.org/call-for-proposals-be-bold-be-creative-get-support/ )  so I am searching for other young scientists who want to participate in order to shape the main idea of the project and to find a project leader with a case study from low and middle income countries .The present call has the following eligibility criteria: The project must be youth-led, with the youth being aged between 18 and 35: ➢ Project leaders from low and middle income countries or targeting indigenous communities will be prioritized; ➢ Project must address one or several of the 4 YWC pillars; A.

Water-related risks: can be related to risk management, recovery and response to natural disasters, floods, drought, etc. D. Sharing water: can be related to transboundary cooperation, watershed management, water & peace, etc. ➢ Youth participation must be included across all aspects of the project. ➢ Projects must have a direct local impact on vulnerable communities; ➢ Can be an ongoing or new project; ➢ The proposals will be assessed and scored according to a scoring grid; ➢ An additional score will also be attributed for innovativeness, including social entrepreneurship and the use of new technologies. ➢ Projects already receiving funds from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) are not admissible.  If you are interested to discuss further for a collaboration feel free to message me here or at konstantinapyrgaki@gmail.com .
