Dennis Nelson at the 6th World Water Forum

The Project WET Foundation was highly visible at the 6th World Water Forum, which was held in March 2012 in Marseille, France. The theme of the Forum was "Time for Solutions". Project WET attended to advocate water education as a solution to pressing water issues.

In addition to exhibiting in a the main hall at the Forum, Project WET was a leader in the water education and water footprinting target areas and convened two sessions addressing those topics. Project WET also presented a case study and sat on the panel for a UN-HABITAT session on Global urban access to safe water, as well as co-hosting a side event on Healthy Hydration in partnership with the International Chair on Cardiometabolic Risk (ICCR). In collaboration with the Korea Water Forum (KWF)—the host of the 2015 7th World Water Forum—Project WET delivered a keynote in their target session to establish a regional water education center in North East Asia by 2018.

Project WET also hosted "Celebrating Solutions through Water Education," a reception to honor leading organizations and individuals in the water education sector. At that event, Project WET presented the Water Visionary Award to Professor András Szöllösi-Nagy DSc, PhD. Dr. Szöllösi-Nagy is the Rector of UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education in The Netherlands.
