Pope Francis will address the world from the Vatican on World Water Day. His livestreamed address will inspire a global conversation around water, and shift how the world values and understands its single most precious resource.

Water activist and actor Matt Damon, NASA astronaut Dr Kathryn Sullivan, and former US President George W Bush are among the prominent figures also taking part in the livestream on March 22nd.

After the event, 400 thought leaders from around the world will convene at WATERSHED. These policy makers, academics, students, artists, business leaders and people from the most at-risk populations will begin an unprecedented dialogue around the value and values of water.
