Solidarity Water Europe (SWE)
The International Secretariat for Water (ISW) and Solidarity Water Europe (SWE) gather citizens and organizations actively committed to the water cause. Their engagement involves surveying the application of the movement’s founding texts (Montreal Charter and Strasbourg Declaration) aimed at access for all to water and sanitation. The ISW is based in Montreal, Canada, and SWE in Strasbourg, France.
With a focus on developing knowledge, forging innovative partnerships and encouraging creativity, ISW-SWE develops initiatives that guarantee the right to water, and thus universal access to water and sanitation, while preserving it. ISW-SWE and its partners create bridges and areas for dialogue between stakeholders (civil society, the academic sector, the private sector and institutions).
