As global water professionals, we know that raising money to solve water challenges is much easier when people see for themselves that water management and sustainable water solutions add value in more than one sense.This is why we welcome you in our HOUSE OF WATER.
As a floating island this virtual exhibition is designed to inspire cities and nations to invest in their blue structures.
HOUSE OF WATER is just next to the Little Mermaid in the harbour of the capital of Denmark. Today the water in Copenhagen is so clean that people enjoy taking a swim. This is a privilege that only few major port cities in the world share so far. Copenhagen is thus an example of how tapping into the blue resources and becoming a sustainable element of the water cycle creates a liveable city on so many levels.
