Educate. Empower. Act. The mission of Project WET is to reach children, parents, educators and communities of the world with water education. We invite you to join us in educating children about the most precious resource on the planet — water.
The Project WET Foundation will be highly visible at the Sixth World Water Forum, which starts on 12 March in Marseille, France. The theme of the Forum this year is "Time for Solutions", and we will be there to advocate water education as a solution to pressing water issues.
In addition to exhibiting in a triple booth space in the main hall at the Forum, Project WET is a leader in the water education and water footprinting target areas and will convene two sessions addressing those topics. Project WET will also present a case study and sit on the panel for a UN-HABITAT session on Global urban access to safe water, as well as co-host a side event on Healthy Hydration in partnership with the International Chair on Cardiometabolic Risk (ICCR). In collaboration with the Korea Water Forum (KWF), Project WET will deliver a keynote in their target session to establish a regional water education center in North East Asia by 2018.
Project WET is also hosting "Celebrating Solutions through Water Education," a reception to honor leading organizations and individuals in the water education sector. At that event, we
will present our Water Visionary Award to Professor András Szollosi-Nagy DSc, PhD. Dr. Szollosi-Nagy is the Rector of UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education in The Netherlands.
A complete schedule of Project WET's activities at the Sixth World Water Forum will be available on the Project WET Facebook page. Project WET staff will be updating social media in real time, so please "Like" us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to see what's happening in Marseille!
