“Watershed: Replenishing Water Values for a Thirsty World” Conference at the Vatican on 22 March 2017



On March 22nd, World Water Day 2017, Pope Francis will inspire a global conversation. His address from the Vatican will help shift how the world values and understands its single most precious resource: water.

Immediately following the Papal address, at 10:30 a.m. CET, 400 thought leaders from around the world will convene at WATERSHED. These policy makers and academics, together with students, artists, business leaders and men and women from the most at-risk populations will begin an unprecedented dialogue around the value and values of water.

The conference is co-hosted by the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Culture and the Club of Rome.

Collaborating partners include Circle of Blue, with input from the World Economic Forum Global Future Council on the Environment.
