To honour achievement and inspire action for equitable and sustainable development in water, SIWI awards the Stockholm Water Prize, the Stockholm Junior Water Prize, and the Stockholm Industry Water Award. SIWI also hosts and organises the World Water Week in Stockholm – the leading annual global event for concretely addressing the planet’s water issues and related concerns of international development. To read more about the week, visit worldwaterweek.org.
All SIWI’s prestigious prizes have unique profiles but share the vision to recognise and encourage actors that strive to bring solutions to the world’s water challenges. Visionary individual and institutional leadership, ground-breaking research and innovation, dedicated water stewardship, and, of course, passionate involvement of youth in water issues are all brought together during the prize ceremonies at the World Water Week in Stockholm. SIWI serves as secretariat for each prize.
