SIWI honours outstanding water achievements and encourages innovative water-wise action by awarding prizes to both long-time water heroes and the young water champions of tomorrow.
Since 1991, the annual Stockholm Water Prize, has been awarded to some of the water world’s most influential and extraordinary women, men, and organizations. It is one of the most prestigious awards of its kind and is often described as the Nobel Prize of water. Stockholm Junior Water Prize was born a few years later out of the same wish to honour important water achievements. It is a global competition for students, one which attracts tens of thousands of participants from about 40 countries each year.
