World Water Week 2019
1 September, 2019
At its core, World Water Week is a collaborative learning experience. Some 3300 participants from more than 130 countries come to Stockholm each year to exchange knowledge, network and develop solutions to the world’s most pressing water-related challenges. Nearly 400 organizations will convene sessions this year.
During the nearly week-long conference, participating academics, policymakers, practitioners, private sector actors and young professionals can attend over 250 sessions of different forms, in addition to many informal events and meetings that take place in the margins and off-site. Highlights of the Week include the awarding of the Stockholm Water Prize, presented by H.M. King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden, and the Stockholm Junior Water Prize, presented by H.R.H Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden.
In 2019, the organiser, Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI), has selected a new venue with the intention of creating a more inclusive World Water Week village. Tele2 Arena not only makes it possible for more people to attend, it
also allows for more flexibility and networking opportunities.
“As issues of water scarcity and variability take hold all over the world, we want to ensure that World Water Week continues to evolve,” says Torgny Holmgren, Executive Director, SIWI.
