The CLEAR Youth Network Congress is the annual gathering of the CLEAR Youth Network as represented by Eco-Camp graduates and their groups that were formed in the schools and/or communities as a result of the Camp.  The Congress is a venue not just for reporting accomplishments and planning of yearly activities – more importantly, it is a platform for learning so that the youth network will continuously be equipped with new knowledge and practice in lake conservation.

8th CLEAR Youth Network Congress

The 8th CLEAR Youth Network Congress was held on 14-15 December 2013 at the Gabrielle/D’Hidden Resort in Pangil, Laguna.  This year’s theme was The Youth as Water Managers, focusing on this year’s World Wetlands Day theme Wetlands and Water Management.  They key objective of this year’s Congress is to raise the awareness of the Youth, particularly the CLEAR Youth Network members and their affiliates about the interdependence of water and wetlands and how they may contribute to the wise use of wetlands.
