Safe water for all!

22 March 2019
Today is the international UN World Water Day. In partnership with Water for All and Engineers without borders, we mark the day by inviting our stakeholders to chip in with good ideas for innovative solutions that can help the world reach the UN Sustainable Development Goal 6 of ensuring availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all by 2030.

Sustainable Development Goal 6 is crystal clear: water for all by 2030. By definition, this means leaving no one behind. But today, billions of people are still living without safe water – their households, schools, workplaces, farms and factories struggling to survive and thrive.

Marginalized groups – women, children, refugees, indigenous peoples, disabled people and many others – are often overlooked, and sometimes face discrimination, as they try to access and manage the safe water they need.

Bright ideas are needed

This World Water Day, 22nd March, is about tackling the water crisis by addressing the reasons why so many people are being left behind. However, the day is also about finding the right solutions.

Innovation and new ways of thinking is crucial to ensure safe water for all. Therefore, Ramboll together with the organisations Water for People and Engineers without borders invites you to chip in with a bright idea. Your idea can be technical, digital, political or practical – the important thing is that it would help the world reach the SDG 6.


All the ideas will be assessed by a small jury consisting of René Hoeijmakers, Executive Director for Ramboll Water, Eleanor Ellen, CEO of WaterForPeople and Dorte Lindegaard Madsen and Nanna Lee Thusgaard, Secretary-General and Board Member, respectively, in EngineersWithoutBordersDenmark. The submitter of the best idea will receive good advice from the jury on how to bring the idea to life.
