Stockholm Junior Water Prize 2016

This year, the Stockholm Junior Water Prize (SJWP) is organised by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) for the twentieth year running. The organisers expect ideas from thousands of creative inventors between the ages of 15 and 20 about the topics of water and sustainability. Finalists will spend five days in Stockholm, where they will match their knowledge and ideas in a competition at the World Water Week between 28 August and 2 September.

The Global Climate Change Spiral

The video showing the global variation of temperatures between 1850 and March 2016 is going viral on the Internet. A number of scientific questions have been raised regarding the data sets behind the animation produced by Ed Hawkins. Yet its greatest advantage has not been contested: it presents the fact that our planet is getting warmer, and the alarming rate of change, in a clear and straightforward manner.

Living Island – an encounter of nature and technology mediated by water

In the part of Budapest full of office buildings, integrated into the central offices of the Budapest Waterworks Company, people passing by will soon encounter a hitherto unbelievable and unimaginable living island in the sea of concrete and glass. A demolished staircase will be replaced by a lush display of vegetables and herbs in glass containers. The experimental urban farm built in cooperation with Biopolus Ltd. will present the encounter of the life-giving medium of water and innovative, as yet extraordinary plant cultivation solutions that will become commonplace in the future in a spectacular fashion. Thanks to the special aeroponic plant cultivation technology developed specifically for urban environments that the living island will be based on, very high quality crops can be grown in a very small area, without soil or sunlight.
