Stockholm Water Prize – Call for Nominations

SIWI is a water institute. They leverage knowledge and their convening power to strengthen water governance for a just, prosperous, and sustainable future.

The idea that became Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) stems from three linked events in Stockholm in 1991. The Stockholm Water Festival invited the public to celebrate water on the streets of Stockholm, the Stockholm Water Symposium gathered some two hundred scientists to discuss global water challenges, and the Stockholm Water Prize, under the patronage of H.M. King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden, was awarded for the first time, in recognition of outstanding achievements in water-related activities.

A candidate for the Stockholm Water Prize shall have attained outstanding achievements of lasting significance for sustainable use and protection of the world’s water resources.

To promote excellent water achievements and inspire future water-wise action, SIWI awards prizes to heroes who have contributed to a water-wise world.

The winner of the Stockholm Water Prize is announced every year in March, usually in conjunction with World Water Day 22 March. A prize ceremony and Royal Banquet is held at the Stockholm City Hall as part of World Water Week in August. The laureate is also addressing the Week’s Opening Plenary and a special Stockholm Water Prize Symposium is organized as part of the Week. In addition to the global acknowledgment and visibility, the Stockholm Water Prize laureate receives a specially designed sculpture and 1 million SEK.
