Waterwheel: The World Waterday Symposium

Today we participated in the online symposium ‘Waterwheel’ with a presentation of our Paperboat project. We were delighted see all the other projects and to meet the other participants. Our session ‘Activism, Art & Science’ contained presentations of Paula Vélez Bravo, Jean Noël Montagné and Rob van Kranenbrug about the Ark0 and the OSWASH (open source washing machine), Mari Keski-Korsu about energy resources and activism and Lila Moore with a presentation about Water e-motion.

The movies of the nominated projects were presented during the Haagse Communicatiedag from which a professional jury selected 3 projects. Together with BLOOMILY and iTwyc our Paperboat project was one of the last 3. The audience could then vote for their favourite project, and we came in second!

Coincidentally theatre ‘de Appel’ was presenting the play ‘Cassanova’ at the time, and because the play is set in a watery scenery, the whole stage was replaced by a large pool.
The ideal environment to demonstrate our Paperboat!
