Presenting 6 finalist projects out of 29, participating in the Stockholm Junior Water Prize 2020

This year’s finalists in the Stockholm Junior Water Prize are taking on the most challenging water issues in the world, with impressive results. In Bolivia, students are helping their community by teaching low-income families how to purify water using coconut shells. In the Republic of Korea, two students have discovered how to remove heavy metals from water using a substance that comes from algae. Watch the videos below to learn more.

Note: Due to COVID-19, this year’s Stockholm Junior Water Prize is being held entirely online. An innovative feature for the prize has also been introduced – the People’s Choice AwardVote for your favorite project by August 10! The award ceremony will take place during WWWeek At Home, a series of virtual sessions with world-leading water and climate experts, held August 24-28, 2020. Xylem is the Founding Global Sponsor of the Stockholm Junior Water Prize.

This year’s Stockholm Junior Water Prize has finalists from 29 countries. Here are just a few of the inspirational projects from these young water leaders.
