World Water Week 2016


This year World Water Week will take place in Stockholm from August 28th until September 2nd. This conference for WASH professionals from all over the world is to share knowledge and gain insights about their expertise area. As number one event to attract attention to the need of accelerating WASH together, the WWW is the perfect moment to meet, connect and learn.


During the conference we’ll be hosting regional events at our stand under the theme: “Accelerating WASH in...” Each day a different region will be placed in the spotlights to share insights, learnings and best practices on accelerating WASH. The objective of these events is to attract and engage new partners and donors that are active in the specific regions in Asia and Africa. From Monday to Wednesday, visitors are invited to take a seat on the Acceleration Sofa and discuss their personal ‘recipe for acceleration’ with the Country Coordinators from Ethiopia, Mali and Bangladesh. They will share with you how to accelerate WASH in their countries in various, interactive ways.


So if you are in Stockholm this year, join us at one of these events:
