Water Museums Global Network

Water museums all over the world play a major role in developing and implementing information and educational programmes on a variety of water related issues. They have a great potential to communicate the present-day water challenges and the possible innovative solutions to large audiences. Water Museums position themselves as educators and leaders of transformation towards more sustainable and unbiased practices of water resources use and management.

Institutions play a leading role in tackling the challenges of the local water crisis. Many water museums are already active in communicating the urgency of defying common perceptions for more sustainable water use. Water museums often operate in isolated contexts. The need to exchange experience and best practices can be ensured only through a larger network - hence a Water Museums Global Network.

The Global Network of Water Museums is launching its first Youth Prize Contest running from 15th October 2019 to 15th March 2020.                                                               

Young people worldwide are invited to work collaboratively with each other and with their teachers to produce a photo, drawing or short video. The work should reflect novel ideas and perspectives on the importance of our liquid heritage and its relation to Climate Change the announced theme of UNESCO World Water Day 2020.

Further details can be found in the official Call for proposals.
