Organised by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) since 1991, World Water Week takes place annually in Stockholm, attracting people from all around the globe.
While the Covid-19 pandemic has caused setbacks this year, the SIWI have been quick to make it reality online. Going live on your screens from 8am to 9 pm CET, Monday 24th to Friday 28th August, World Water Week at Home remains the perfect opportunity for everyone to join one of the arguably most influential movements on Earth.
For 29 years, SIWI have worked tirelessly to bring crucial issues concerning water security to the attention of the international community, from the most powerful countries to single individuals. Every year, organisers choose a specific theme, in line with UN World Water Day, which becomes the focus of all the events happening during the week. Meetings, exhibitions, interactive learning sessions, interviews, social events and ceremonies create an international forum for both private organisations and the general public to meet and exchange opinions and practices, and for scientists to educate and expose their research.
