UNESCO's World Water WeekConference Highlights
This video is a quick diary of the World Water Week, the world’s most important annual event regarding water resources, and the main messages and initiatives that UNESCO launched.
UNESCO’s presence at the 2013 World Water Week in Stockholm was massive since the organization was leading the coordination of the International Year of Water Cooperation. We had to document, throughout the week, with videos and photos the events, conference and initiatives that involved UNESCO. Working in a multicultural, inspiring and fast paced environment is a big part of the reward we brought back from this experience.

The United Nations Education Science and Culture Organisation or UNESCO was created in 1945 in order to respond to the firm belief of nations, forged by two world wars in less than a generation, that political and economic agreements are not enough to build a lasting peace. People must rely on the power of intelligence to innovate, expand their horizons and sustain the hope of a new humanism, UNESCO exists to bring this creative intelligence to life; for it is in the minds of men and women that the defences of peace and the conditions for sustainable development must be built.
Reporting on an international conference as big as the World Water Week in Stockholm is a real challenge. Different venues, multiple speakers, various events to attend, king and princess, theatrical representations, ministers and heads of state. It all comes down to being extremely organised and focused. The rest is just fun.
Tight Production Schedule
We had one week to shoot, edit and deliver. We were traveling and busy all day going from venue to venue, only able to work at night. In the end, the products were delivered and the client was very satisfied. We were tired but grateful to be able to do the work we love for an important organisation and in such great event.
Finding the right people to work with isn’t always easy and straightforward but everything came so natural with the team we found ourselves working with, that the days we passed in Stockholm went by without a hitch.
