The EJWP also supports the start of the European Water Stars programme. The European Water Stars programme aims to engage both water specialists and celebrities to contribute expertise and publicity towards European water-related challenges. The programme will create water ambassadors – the so called Water Stars – who can inspire young professionals to work in the water sector, bringing in fresh ideas and creative solutions for these challenges.
Collaboration on water challenges delivers multiple gains: share inspiration and lessons learnt across borders, contribute to relevant and innovative policies, coordinate activities, develop projects, exchange knowledge and experiences, create synergistic hubs, influence water governance.
These actions are οf essence for issues relating to transboundary water and catchment management and to the development of upcoming European Directives (e.g. household and industrial water use).
The Water Stars programme is looking for a dynamic mix of strong European celebrities, business people, politicians and water experts to cover these water topics and bring them to the forefront of every European’s citizen understanding.
The programme is currently in the Stars engagement process, which you can follow on our social media.
All the phases of the initiative will be recorded, and the full story will be presented through a vibrant documentary – a first session is now launched!
