World Water Week 2022 - 23 August to 1 September - will be a hybrid event for the first time. Delegates are invited to join online and/or in person in Stockholm, Sweden, with registration now open.

Organized by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI), the theme of World Water Week 2022 is ‘Seeing the Unseen: The Value of Water‘, with a focus on the diverse aspects of water, how others view and value water, and to explore water’s full value to society.

Over seven days, World Water Week 2022 will offer around 300 sessions on topics ranging from food security and health to agriculture, technology, innovation, and the climate crisis.

World Water Week 2022 will begin on 23 August with three days of online content. Thereafter, participants can choose to join proceedings in Stockholm from 28 August, or to continue online. The last day of this year’s conference is 1 September.
