The “Citizen’s House for Water” is a place of dialogue, advocacy and cultural expression. It constitutes part of the official Forum programme and its primary role is to host open and participatory debates with the objective of overcoming divides and finding concrete solutions among all stakeholders. The idea is to encourage free and frank discussion of ideas.
It will also serve as a bridge between the Forum participants and the general public.
It will propose activites such as multiple workshops and working sessions of varying durations; discussions and informal meetings, audio-visual projections, artistic performances, openings and launches.
