King and Crown Princess attend Stockholm Water Prize Symposium
On August 28, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Crown Princess Victoria attended the Stockholm Water Prize Symposium: Finding the flow. World Water Week is the annual focal point for the globe's water issues and is put on the the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) and the King, the Queen and the Crown Princess usually attend several events during the week. Over 3300 people from 130 countries participate in this year’s conference “Water for society - Including all “
This year’s symposium focused on a central question: “How much should we attempt to change water and how much do we need to change with it? Can we combine a fight against the currents and a going with the flow?' . Six researchers and experts lectured on how human intervention in natural waters has increased rapidly over the past millennium, and how it affects the future. A joint paneled discussion also took place.
After the symposium, the King and the Crown Princess visited three of the conference exhibition stands focusing on India, the Netherlands and the Stockholm Junior Water Prize.
Crown Princess Victoria wore a new Rodebjer dress which she paired with her Hippi Grace 3-in-1 bag, Rizzo pumps, Maria Nilsdotter feather earrings, Dulong Necklace, and her normal stack of silver bracelets. She also wore and long pendant necklace and her Love Script Cuff first seen at the Polar Music Prize last year- but no designer has claimed it.
