The New York Water Week is a collaboration between the New York City government and the Netherlands. It showcases innovative water actions and solutions from across the globe. It also broadens the scope and impact of the United Nations 2023 Water Conference, which takes place from 22 – 24 March. We invite you to bring your ideas to New York City, showcase your best practices and innovations, and share your pledges and commitments to the Water Action Agenda. Let’s inspire and be inspired.
The central themes of New York Water Week are:
- Youth & Education: Empower those who can empower others;
- Resilient Cities: Cities as centers for creative solutions and action;
- Water Innovation and Businesses: Being serious about water means putting words into action.
We welcome innovative startups, corporate entrepreneurs and passionate water professionals.
