Now that importance has been recognised by the leading actors on the global level, which plays the key role in educating the public and raising the awareness on the various questions regarding freshwater worldwide.

Director of the Aquatika museum, Margarita Karuškić Kulaš, said: “Museums, interpretation centres and similar institutions play a key role today in communicating the values of the heritage of water, the better understanding of the water crisis of today and possible solutions to it. We are extremely proud that Aquatika has become a part of this prestigious group, as well as the worldwide initiative on the sustainable use of waters and the protection of life in the water.

The Global Network of Water Museums was founded as an initiative to create synergies within UNESCO’s international hydrological program. The network aims to improve the coordination of the communication and educational activities of the museums and similar institutions, focused on the topic of water. In addition to that, the association deals with the questions and challenges caused by climate change, such as the continually worsening pollution of the water, resource depletion, glaciers’ melting, the increasing frequency of flooding, and the maintaining of natural habitats.
