"Fierce national competition over water resources has prompted fears that water issues contain the seeds of violent conflict."

Water Politics

Water is, has been and for many years to come will be the leading source to preserve life on Earth. In the past the main target of environmental conferences and the treaty outcomes were targeted on questions concerning global warming, greenhouse gasses, sources of green power and many other. The Forum for 21st century is not trying to diminish the importance of these issues. Its goal is to stress out the importance of water politics and equalize with the other important issues, not only in the Environmental section but also to the general issues of all the sections.

Questions such as water pollution, obtaining water in dry areas, reducing conflicts due to lack of water are the concerns of the Environmental section at the Forum for 21st century. They have come to notice and started playing a more significant role in maintaining the standards of living in the world today. It is not only about the economy, security or finding levels of communication between nations. The tendency that we can see today is the shift in understanding these questions and putting enough stress on them, so we would be able to make those necessary changes.

The invitations to the Forum for 21st century has kindly been accepted by the plenary representatives of the United States of America, the European Union, China, India, Brazil, the African Union and Global Young Greens concerning not only representatives of foreign partner states and governmental organization, but also by representatives of non-governmental organizations to overlook and contribute to the negotiations and help create a more eligible consensus then in the past.
