Replenishing Water Values for a Thirsty World

Official Logo WATERSHED

WATERSHED is that rare moment in human history, when people, ideas and values align and unite to achieve something remarkable. At 10:30am CET, on Piazza San Pietro, Pope Francis will inspire this global conversation, helping shift how the world values and understands its single most precious

resource: water.

Immediately following the Papal Audience, an exceptional and diverse group of people from every walk of life and every corner of the globe will engage in an extraordinary exchange of ideas around the global water crises.

Replenishing Water Values for a Thirsty World is co-hosted by the Vatican and the renowned think-tank, Club of Rome, in collaboration with Circle of Blue, with the participation of the joint UN/World High Level Panel on Water, The World Economic Forum Global Future Council on the Environment, and The Value Web. It will be the first in a series of programmes and activities slated for the next five years.


Be a part of this select group of water experts, artists, community, political and business leaders and young people. 

WATERSHED: March 22nd, 2017, World Water Day. The Vatican 1:30pm – 7:00pm .

The United Nations World Water Assessment Programme of UNESCO is one of the collaborators and will also be participating to this unique event.
