North American Youth Parliament for Water
A chapter of the World Youth Parliament for Water uniting young water professionals in the USA and Canada working to help achieve SDG 6
We are the chapter of the World Youth Parliament for Water operating in the USA and Canada.
The NAYPW is a primarily remote organization that exists without an official office or location, and connects youth water activists, professionals and researchers from across the continent. As a nonprofit, the NAYPW is officially registered on the traditional territory of the Chemapho, the Chepenefa, and the Kalapuya, as an organization in Corvallis, Oregon, USA. We are also registered on land taken from the Anishinaabeg, the Haudenosaunee, the Wendat, and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, and in the ‘Dish with One Spoon Territory’, through our registration in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
