This year’s Stockholm World Water Week will take place from 27th August – 1 September. This conference for experts, practitioners, decision-makers and business innovators from a range of sectors and countries is to network, exchange ideas, foster new thinking and develop solutions to the most pressing water-related challenges of today.

The Swiss Water & Sanitation Consortium will participate at the booth of the Swiss Water Partnership (SWP) and the NGO tent. We will present what we do and share information on our promising approaches and experiences. We present first results of the Blue School Kit we are currently developing. It brings together our experiences from more than 200 schools in 7 countries.

Please join the Consortium for the following events:

  • Blue Schools 2.0: Closing the cycle to reach SDG6
    WASH in institutions is an integral part of Sustainable Development Goal #6.  In addition to the methods developed by the Wash in Schools (WINS) community of practice, the Blue School concept is a promising approach to raise children’s awareness about the link between water, waste, food and the environment.  Blue Schools has included a school garden to show relationships between food production and an efficient management of water; and the Blue Schools 2.0 version adds focus on waste, watershed and land management practices and also aims to inform and inspire children about professions in the water sector. Come join the Swiss Water and Sanitation Consortium’s presentation to learn more about Blue Schools!Wed 30 Sept,  13:30 – 15:00
