We live in the world that is getting more endangered and polluted each and every day. And we are not sufficiently aware of this fact as we take for granted many things given to us by Earth: drinking tap water, the lawn in front of the house, a wonderful waterfall on a trip on a Saturday, for example. We are surrounded by immense beauty that we don’t appreciate enough.

Vision and mission:

We would like to emphasize the values of natural goods, especially water; that is why we decided to create an international project with the topic of water.

The main purpose of the project is to raise public awareness about water issues in Slovenia, as well as in other parts of the world, provide solutions and work on its development. For this purpose, we partnered with ministries for environment from Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia, and started with first regional awarding (2017): responsible towards water in several categories (corporate – all sizes, national projects, and individual projects). In the mentioned countries, we also started with regional competition in primary schools.

BWF platform seeks innovative and revolutionary projects and products/services in the field of water/water management. Think thank for new revolutionary projects and products in the field of water/water management.

Our mission is to change and improve the habits of people, improve the economy and help the business sector.

WINNERS IN 2017

The first international 2-day water event. The first regional awarding in the categories: corporate (all sizes), individual, and national projects from Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia and Austria. The primary schools competition expands to the mentioned countries. The first international (regional) awarding. Several water-themed feature films are shown.

With participation of larger international water organizations from the region, we organize several strategically important water events.

The result: the interest of the countries for participation in the tender for innovations is increased; a consortium of companies and water experts for participation in international markets is created. Furthermore, BWF is invited to global water forums and various other fairs around the world, where new revolutionary ideas, projects and products are born, as a potential partner. The interest of all participants, as well as film industry, is increased.
