Water for society – Including all
25/08/2019 - 30/08/2019
Tele2 Arena

An event organized by Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI)

World Water Week provides a unique forum for the exchange of views, experiences and practices between the scientific, business, policy and civic communities. It focuses on new thinking and positive action toward water-related challenges and their impact on the world’s environment, health, climate, economic and poverty reduction agendas by:

  • Linking scientific understanding with policy and decision-making to develop concrete solutions to water, environment and development challenges
  • Fostering proactive partnerships and alliances between individuals and organisations from different fields of expertise
  • Highlighting ground-breaking research, best practices and innovative policy work by stakeholders and experts around the world and from multiple disciplines
  • Reviewing the implementation of actions, commitments and decisions in international processes and by different stakeholders in response to the challenges
  • Awarding outstanding achievements

In 2019, World Water Week will address the theme “Water for society – Including all”. In 2018, over 3,300 individuals and around 380 convening organizations from 135 countries participated in the Week.

Experts, practitioners, decision-makers, business innovators and young professionals from a range of sectors and countries come to Stockholm to network, exchange ideas, foster new thinking and develop solutions to the most pressing water-related challenges of today. We believe water is key to our future prosperity, and that together, we can achieve a water wise world.
