World Water Week is the world’s most influential movement focused on transforming global water challenges.

In 2023, World Water Week is focused on innovation at a time of unprecedented challenges. The 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?

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

You can join the World Water Week 2023 both on site in Stockholm or online for a programme full of sessions on topics like innovation, behavioural change, technology, and governance.
