– Ismail Serageldin, former Vice President World Bank

Let’s Talk About Water
Let’s Talk About Water (LTAW) is a traveling festival, combining movies and panel discussions to spark conversations on local, regional, and global water issues around the world. For this Amsterdam edition, Let’s Talk About Water teamed up with AMS Institute to put together a thrilling set of speakers, movies and debates.

Seminars
During the day, we have a strong line-up for the seminars which are held at AMS Institute. These seminars include speakers like the president of OECD’s Water Governance Initiative Peter Glas, UNESCO-IHE ’s Professor Water Governance at Margreet Zwarteveen and Kees van Leeuwen, Principal Scientist at KWR and Professor at Utrecht University.

Documentaries & Panel Discussions
In the evening the program continues in De Balie with film screenings followed by panel discussions. For the panel discussions we’ve invited the movie directors and multiple experts in water, politics urban issues to discuss the movies or other – sometimes unexpected – aspects, related to water issues.
