Strategies and methodologies aimed at the sustainable management of water and water ecosystems need to go beyond technical and economic-driven approaches. In the run-up to the UN Water Conference and during NY Water Week, we gathered several methodologies and insights that combine local stories with global narratives in a multi-scalar approach, enabling design-thinking and artistic interventions for the implementation of the Water Action Agenda. This high-level meeting aims to share our insights and gather support of policy makers and international organizations for the implementation of a series of action-based initiatives. Together, the participants will set aims and objectives for the year to come, and formalize the commitments for the Water Action Agenda.
