The big final in New York!

Our first milestone will be the UN2023 Water Conference in New York! During this unique event the world will come together in New York to discuss our commitments to reaching the climate goals. The Conference will take place from the March 22-24, 2023, but many activities will be organized before, during and after the Conference.

However, we are confirmed all the five ideas are winners!
