World Water Week in Stockholm

1-6 September 2013


This year, the World Water Week in Stockholm, Sweden addressed the theme of Water Cooperation - Building Partnerships in reflection of the World Water Day and the International Year of Water Cooperation 2013.

What better than a puzzle to symbolize the essence of cooperation and the need for us all to join forces in achieving a common goal?
UN-Water, UNESCO and SIWI invited the participants of the World Water Week to add their piece to the Giant Puzzle of Water Cooperation throughout the week.

The puzzle was inaugurated on Monday 2 September at 15:30 at the UN-Water Pavilion by Mr. Michel Jarraud, Chair of UN-Water, Ms. Irina Bokova, Director General of UNESCO, Ms. Svensson, Sweden's Ambassador for Oceans, Seas and Fresh Water and Ms. Karin Lexen, Director of the World Water Week.

After the inauguration, all participants could add their piece, until the image was finally revealed!

Every piece, just as every drop, matters!
