According to We Are Helsinki, clean water is “something that most Finns take for granted”, since many other countries, specially the poor ones, do not have that ‘luxury’. The idea of a carbon footprint is already a familiar concept to many of us, but only a few have heard of a water footprint which indicates the amount of water used to produce food.

Considering that, Helsinki will be hosting the next Wonderwater Café: a pop-up event exploring the relationship between food and water consumption designed to raise awareness of the water footprint, aiming to make us think about the impact of what we eat on local and global water use. The first Wonderwater Café took place in Beijing Design Week 2011. The next Wonderwater Café, Wonderwater Café Kiasma, opens 22 May at Café Kiasma in the Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Arts and runs until 16 September and  people can check the water footprint of each dish marked on the menu in liters.

In 2012, more Wonderwater Cafés are planned for London (15 – 23 September during London Design Festival) and Shanghai.
