Let’s make waves for water.

New York Water Week
18 – 24 March 2023, New York City

New York Water Week is organized by you, with you, and for you.

Join us in New York or online to discover, share and amplify the solutions to create a water secure future for all.


Water offers powerful solutions to tackle global problems, from climate change to inequality, but does not receive the attention it deserves.

Now it’s time to change that.

New York Water Week will showcase game-changing water actions and solutions from across the world and build momentum for the United Nations 2023 Water Conference taking place 22 – 24 March 2023.

#WaterAction that leaves no one behind.


Come together with your neighbors, community leaders, businesses and government to host and attend events that champion water innovation and action around the world.

From a film festival to plenaries, art shows, challenges and workshops, New York Water Week will bring together the best the world has to offer, all to celebrate and drive #WaterAction in the lead-up to the UN 2023 Water Conference.

18 – 24 March 2023,
New York City
