Embassy of Water

A Purification Greenhouse, rainwater beer and a Turritap that makes tap water naturally whirl to make it even more tasty. These are some of the innovations visitors will encounter at the Embassy of Water in AtelierNL’s church on Bergmannstraat. The Embassy of Water is a platform for water related innovation where people can share knowledge, inspire each other and jointly accelerate meaningful innovations.

Connecting designers, government, knowledge and research institutes, enterprises and end-users at an early stage, enables a creative Water Hub to emerge where future-oriented collaborations can take place, aimed at achieving a sustainable, water-friendly society.
