A team of five of us has just arrived at World Water Forum 6 in Marseille. This massive congress is 2012’s biggest event focused on water and sanitation – we’ve heard more than 20,000 people will descend on this Mediterranean port during the week.

Here’s a short video with Peter van der Linde, Mark Tiele Westra and Jeroen van der Sommen, describing what we’re hoping to get out of our time here.

We’re sharing space in the Dutch pavilion – that’s the orange place which serves good beer every day at about 5pm – so if you want to meet us, drop by to our spot (it’s in the exhibition area). Or email me – mark[at]akvo.org – or Peter van der Linde – peter[at]akvo.org and we can fix a get-together.

Mark Charmer is a co-founder of Akvo.
