World Water Week will take place in Stockholm, Sweden, between 27 August and 1st September 2017. The forum is hosted annually by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) as the focal point for global water issues. As a key player in the resource revolution, SUEZ will be present at this industry-leading event.
The World Water Week has been held every year since 1991 to analyse water management as a global resource. In 2016, over 3,200 attendees and almost 330 organisations from 130 countries took part in the event. This year, the panel discussions and plenary sessions will address the theme of "Water and waste: reduce and reuse". Experts, practitioners and decision-makers come to Stockholm to network and exchange scientific, political and ethical ideas on the most pressing water-related challenges of today (sustainable development, environmental protection, innovation, circular economy etc.).
