1 day - 18 cities - 600 children
On 11th of November, 2017, 600 children from cities all around the world, worked in parallel to design and develop solutions and innovative concepts around the water issues, build prototypes and present them to each other via a live connection, and at the end of the day to the live audience, their parents and a panel of experts.
