First launched in 2016, the AWS Global Water Stewardship Forum has quickly been recognised as the ‘must attend’ event for the international water stewardship community. Offering a unique space for diverse actors to come together and engage in two days of knowledge sharing, networking and action planning, the AWS Forum will help the stewardship community to advance their impact on the World’s water resources and environments.
As with previous AWS fora the 2018 Forum will be an open, participant driven, multi-stakeholder event reflecting and engaging diverse perspectives. Delegates will include businesses facing water-related risks relating to operations, supply chains, local stakeholder groups and end of line consumers; public sector organizations working in water-relevant areas of policy; investors and financial service providers concerned with water-related risk management processes; development agencies and NGOs with water-related programmes and sustainability service providers who support the implementation or assessment of standards and CSR programmes.
Delegates will network with a range of water stewardship practitioners, share experience and perspectives and engage in open discussions to collectively advance the impact of stewardship. Expert panels from business, government and civil society will reflect on progress and achievements to date as well as addressing the major issues required to deepen and widen participation in water stewardship, and to scale the impact of stewardship in diverse sectors, geographies and economies.
Convened with support from the Scottish Government the AWS Forum is open to Members and non-Members of AWS. Member organisations receive one free ticket. All other tickets are £350 + VAT.
