AWS Global Water Stewardship Forum

17-19 May 2022

AWS Global Water Stewardship Forum

Thank you to everyone who joined us online or in-person at this year’s AWS Global Water Stewardship Forum. The Forum is one of the key events in which our community of members, implementers and stakeholders share knowledge and learning on the evolution of water stewardship practice and forge new directions through dialogue and partnerships.

Held annually in Edinburgh, Scotland, since 2016, it has become the must-attend event for the international water stewardship community. The 2022 AWS Global Water Stewardship Forum was held from 17-19 May 2022 at Dynamic Earth and participants from around the world were also able to join online, making this a hybrid event.

While we are reflecting on the conversations we had we are also looking forward to the 2023 AWS Global Water Stewardship Forum. For updates on next year’s event, make sure to subscribe to the AWS International newsletter.

Thank you to our sponsors for their support!


  • The Forum officially opened on Tuesday 17 May 2022 and took place over three days, finishing on Thursday 19 May
