28 - 31 March 2017, Messe Berlin exhibition grounds

WASsERLEBEN features interactive displays for pupils and adults on all aspects of water.

Water does not come from a tap in many countries, where the life-giving resource is scarce.

In order to provide schoolchildren hands-on knowledge about the element of water, Messe Berlin is organizing the 13th edition of WASsERLEBEN as part of WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL 2017.

All visitors are invited to explore the entire hall of WASsERLEBEN.

We are offering a special questionnaire for puplis and teacher - this service is provided in German language only. We kindly ask for your understanding.

H2O – Die Besserwassershow organized by Berliner Wasserbetriebe invites school classes to join their interactive stage. This show will be held in German language only. We kindly ask for your understanding.

Water covers 70 per cent of the earth’s surface. Despite this, the way in which this limited resource is managed varies from country to country. Conserving resources has become an increasingly important responsibility.

At WASsERLEBEN 2017 we will be showing young people from around the world amazing, useful and important things about water. Leading companies, organisations, associations and universities will be inviting visitors to an interactive afternoon of experimenting.

On 30 March 2017 from 3 to 6 p.m. you are welcome to bring your family to visit the International Afternoon in the WASsERLEBEN Hall (6.2).

Exhibitors will be there to answer your questions about water (in English too) and will be showing young people, those whose future depends on it, how this valuable and precious resource is being managed in Germany.

Training, internship, profession

WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL and the public show WASsERLEBEN are committed to create the new generation of skilled workers!

The Career Day on 31 March 2017 gives students and professional newcomers a further opportunity to enter into conversation with the exhibitors. The get-together of international science, technology and industry experts and public sector representatives provides excellent opportunities for launching a professional career in water management.

The related icon with the thumb is both: a label and a signpost. It marks the booths where information on entry-level positions and career opportunities is offered. Thus it provides a better orientation to interested scholars, students, trainees and specialists by highlighting the reference points.

Take advantage of our Virtual Market Place® to prepare your visit by creating your individual route along the career exhibitors.
