Future Water was a proud partner in the Co-create 2022 events and competition. A booklet outlining the Co-create 2022 is now available. A little snippet from the booklet:
"An initiative of the Mission Network of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in South Africa, the annual #cocreateDESIGN FESTIVAL celebrates and examines the power of design to tackle current socio-economic and environmental challenges within an African context. The 2022 festival focused on the life-sustaining significance of water and the valuable role it has in shaping healthy, equitable and sustainable blue-green cities for all African citizens. Drawing on four Creative Exchanges held from April – September 2022, under the theme – Designing African blue-green cities for all – the Festival focused on how we design better processes, systems and products that can lead to a more water secure future, particularly in an African context. Through the lens of water-sensitive design, with particular focus on processes and creative solutions, a diversity of key role-players were invited to engage on a range of topics under the key pillars: Water in focus: What are the challenges and how effective are the existing solutions and innovations? And Citizens in focus: Using green and blue design solutions, how can we build healthy cities and explore effective ways to promote health and well-being?"
