New York Water Week is taking place alongside a historic United Nations conference dedicated to water*, the first of its kind since 1977. The Water Week will host creatives, businesses, cities, and water advocates outside of the conference halls, providing a unique opportunity to share knowledge and solutions that feed into the UN 2023 Water Conference.
Connecting the international conference audience with the city of New York, from its citizens and culture of innovation, to its pioneering approach to water management, the Water Week aims to generate ambitious action and influence the Water Action Agenda.
Join us in New York, or online, to explore how we can transform global water management. We invite New Yorkers and people from all over the world to unite and drive the #WaterAction needed to create a just and resilient future.
