The World Water Forum is a multi-stakeholder platform that aims to bring people together from horizons far and wide to find new ideas and solutions to water challenges. Although the World Water Forum takes place once every three years, this cooperation is on-going from one Forum to the next generating continuous collective action for the benefit of mankind.
The 7th World Water Forum will be held in Daegu-Gyeongbuk, Republic of Korea in 2015. Building on the solutions that were formulated during the 6th World Water Forum and the outcomes of the kick-off meeting on 14-15 May 2013, this seminar will seek to present the proposed architecture for the preparation of the 7th World Water Forum and gather input from a wide range of stakeholders through facilitated discussion, in order to set solid foundations for further development of the 7th World Water Forum processes.
We invite you to help the 7th World Water Forum to contribute to a better future by implementing and promoting solutions and by sharing knowledge and experience. Let’s make history with the 7th World Water Forum together!
