With more than half of its 80 sessions dedicated to sanitation, the World Water Week in Stockholm 2008 in August has a decidedly brown tint. WSSCC will have a major presence at the event, moderating panels, organising events, hosting an exhibition and recruiting new members.

On August 18, Executive Director Jon Lane will moderate a high-profile, high-level plenary panel entitled For a Clean and Healthy World — The Role of Sanitation for the MDGs. On, August 19, WSSCC and partners will convene a seminar entitled The Best of Sanitation: Synthesis and Outcomes of the Regional Sanitation Conferences. The same day, WSSCC will give an Introduction to the Global Sanitation Fund during a side event.

Advocacy is central to the International Year of Sanitation and to broader efforts to change human behaviour through communication. On August 20, WSSCC co-hosts the seminar Water and Sanitation Advocacy: How Can We Convince You? Looks forward by WSSCC (Sanitation for the Next Generation) and glances back (The Lingering Failure of Sanitation — Why?) take place August 21.

Finally, during the August 22 Closing General Session, the WASH Media Awards will be presented by WSSCC and SIWI. All week long, a staffed exhibit will provide the latest information on WSSCC and offer member registration. For more information, visit www.worldwaterweek.org.
