Why WWN

The Foundation name, i.e. WWN comes from the first letters of the Polish words Woda Wokół Nas, meaning "water around us". These three words express the idea followed by the Foundation creators. Many hundreds non-governmental organizations worldwide fight for access to water for communities where drinking water often becomes the only hope for life and survival in difficult conditions. We support all the campaigns and actions devoted to that. However, the creators of WWN have had a bit different objective, i.e. to teach and improve knowledge about the "water around us", that is about everything connected with water, even if those things are only indirectly associated. We want to expand knowledge about waterbodies, water resources, the ability to use them, about hydroengineering facilities, water management, water resource saving, river rehabilitation, flood, drought, climate changes and many other more or less known "water-related" aspects. Thanks to the team passionate about creating the Foundation, we can share our long experience and expertise in the field of water management. Our activities are addressed primarily to children, which was reflected in the nature of educational campaigns and WWN logo. We wish to offer the youngest generation a chance to learn all the water-related aspects in Poland and, consequently, we want to improve water resource protection in the future... for next generations.
