Our project deals with the increasing importance of water due to the environmental problems that our world faces within a global scale and access to water sources in accordance with climate change, reduction in the amount of water per capita, senseless consumption and water scarcity. We focus on Burdur Lake where have shrunk almost %30 in last 30 years. This situation causes irremediable problems for the lives around Burdur Lake as economically, ecologically and socially. From this point of view, we will implement the Project to raise awareness and put a new viewpoint with 32 young people from 4 different countries between 4 – 13 May 2016. The young people, who are in the position of shaping the future, will act more sensitively. With the project, it is aimed to make contribution to help them taking steps after the project thanks to the awareness created starting from today. The young people transfered the difficulties and problem they experience as hands-on during the not only workshops, presentations, brainstorming, but also tours of village and nature to their locals by using a variety of tools. With all this activities there was no any barrier in communication among youth just like that nothing can block water and intercultural competencies were provided. At the same time, it is aimed to have international and local effects with the www.burdurlakeisliving.com web page and booklets which include planned events throughout the project.
