The Waterbar - Money as water

The Water Bar concept was the starting point for our vision of The Watergames; we wanted to create more games that could be played in the Water Bar.
We later decided our games should be available for all initiatives involving water to help build awareness and maximise exposure for this important issue.

Water is a miraculous element in itself. All life springs from water and up until today no substitute has been found for it. But did you know that 70% of this planet consists of water yet only 1% can be used for human consumption? And that every 15 seconds a child dies due to lack of drinking water, polluted water or bad sanitation? And that worldwide 1.2 billion people don’t have access to clean drinking water?

These are shocking and uncomfortable facts, but we strongly believe that we can make a difference together! This is why we have started the Water Bar initiative.

The Water Bar is a sustainable and innovative bar concept in which water has a central place. The function of the bar is simple: a place to energize and revitalize, to bring people together and to raise awareness for water-related issues. Besides this, the Waterbar is the first bar in the world that aims to be water neutral. How? By compensating its water
