About BWF

Bled Water Festival is the leading platform for water innovations in the region.

The purpose of the project is to create revolutionary trends in the development of civilization, enable better quality of life and set a sustainable system of water cycle.

It is the platform for connecting and awarding different organizations, international experts, activists, film makers, business people, politicians, investors and general public with the goal to provide modern solutions, integrate them into the system faster, and consequently raise the quality of life, and give rise to the business sector in sustainable orientation for a better tomorrow.

With awarding innovative ideas and examples of good practice from business sector, national and individual projects, films (with ecological topic), we would like to raise awareness about water and necessary sustainable orientation when dealing with water resources for a better quality of life in the future. We bring new dimensions of water and provide the platform of business opportunities and connections.
