World Water Week 2023

World Water Week is an annual event on global water issues and solutions.

World Water Week 2023 is focused on innovation at a time of unprecedented challenges. The year’s theme Seeds of Change: Innovative Solutions for a Water-Wise World invites us to rethink how we manage water. Which ideas, innovations, and governance systems will we need in a more unstable and water scarce world? 

World Water Week 2023 will plant seeds of change. Join online and in Stockholm, at the Waterfront Congress Center, for a programme full of sessions on topics like innovation, behavioural change, technology, and governance.  

Drawing on the latest scientific knowledge and experiences from around the world, World Water Week will explore how water can be a powerful tool to address the climate crisis, global heating, biodiversity loss, poverty, and many other water-related challenges.
