VOInews, Bali : The young generation could make a real contribution to maintaining the security and sustainability of water resources. The simplest ways were keeping plastic waste out of the ocean and saving water usage.

This was said by Cinta Laura, the Communications Ambassador for the 10th World Water Forum, at the Media Center in Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center (BNDCC), Bali, on Monday, 20 May.

The commitment to host the 10th World Water Forum from 18 to 25 May showed that Indonesia is determined to promote equal access to water for everyone.

"Everyone’s involvement in water resources protection and conservation will bring a positive impact on the environment and of course the climate," she said.

The youths could also help water preservation by spreading positive information about clean water conservation and disaster mitigation through various communication channels.

Meanwhile, Andy Bahari, the volunteer leader from World Clean Up Day Indonesia, underscored that water preservation and conservation from waste is a shared responsibility to ensure water sustainability for future generations.

"Waste that accumulates in rivers pollutes the quality of the water. It has an impact on humans and the environment because it is contaminated by dangerous substances," he said.

The 10th World Water Forum is taking place in Nusa Dua Bali from 18 to 25 May under the theme "Water for Shared Prosperity" with six sub-themes, namely Water Security and Prosperity, Water for Humans and Nature, Disaster Risk Reduction and Management, Governance, Cooperation and Hydro-diplomacy, Sustainable Water Finance, and Knowledge and Innovation//VOI
