What do art, water and science have in common? They are all connected in one purpose: human development.

The YouKnoW! platform launched its first Art+Science competition during the months of February and March. The YouKnoW! team wanted to celebrate World Water Day 2019 with art. The ArtSci competition organized by the YouKnoW platform was aimed to encourage youth to advocate for a water secure world through art.

World Water Day 2019 theme has been “Leave no one behind”. Thus, raising awareness about water issues and water practices that tackle them has been the contribution of the ArtSci competition to the world cause.

We want to congratulate everyone who has submitted amazing pictures and artwork to celebrate together this World Water Day and particularly the winners: Abhin and Sonsoles.
