WE ARE WATER

"Water is a connecting issue worldwide. With its integral approach of water scarcity, water safety, water quality and logistics and transport, the Netherlands makes the difference all over the world. We are pioneers, and that fits us. However, it also requires us to keep investing and innovating, both at home and abroad. The Dutch knowledge and technology are unique, and I see a plentitude of opportunities to make use of them even more internationally.”

International events are the perfect platform for Water Ambassadors. The network of ZSL and their partners is capable to make robust connections around the Volvo Ocean Race 2017-2018, De Scheldebeker 2019 and the Olympic Games of 2020 in Japan. By involving the road to these events in the campaign, a 4-year programme can be founded. Such a period is necessary to give the International Water Ambition its foundation, and to make it known to stakeholders.
