An exciting summer is coming as WSSCC gears up for the 2019 Stockholm World Water Week between 25 and 30 August! And this year, we are making a splash!

See our programme for details!

Why?

Because we can’t emphasize enough the importance of this year’s theme: Water for society – Including all. The Council has been enshrining the “Leave No One Behind (LNOB)” mantra into its strategy, plans and outcomes. That means when it comes to our sanitation and hygiene interventions, we will reach out to the most excluded people first and pour our heart into the improvement of their well-being with every possible resource we can shore up. Throughout the outreach activities that we will organize with our partners at Tele2 Arena, we will underpin the “why and how” of the #LNOB ideas.

Visit us at our booth B07!

So what will exactly be happening?

WSSCC will co-host five seminars:

Time: 16:00-17:30, Room: L9: CSO, change makers and allies with government in reaching SDG6

Time: 16:00-17:30, Room: M4: Do No Harm, reaffirming principles and practices in WASH

Time: 9:00-10:30, Room: M5: Session 1: “Sanitation for all: who are we excluding?”

We will open this seminar with an original video on LNOB to respond to the above question!

Time: 11:00-12:30, Room: M5: Session 2: “Sanitation for all: It’s less complicated than you think”

Sue Coates, WSSCC Executive Director ad interim, will do an expert intervention on the dimensions of exclusions.
