World Water Week is the annual focal point for the globe’s water issues. It is organized by SIWI. In 2022, World Water Week will address the theme “Seeing the Unseen – The Value of Water”. 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.
World Water Week features several world-renowned award ceremonies, including the prestigious Stockholm Water Prize Award Ceremony and Royal Banquet as well as the Stockholm Junior Water Prize (SJWP); which gathers imaginative young minds from all over the world in the capital of Sweden, encouraging their continued interest in water and sustainability issues.
