The Raincoat Foundation was founded in 2015 by Mikaela and Peter Granström. Clean water is a non-issue to most swedes as it flows on demand from every tap around our cities, villages and homes. To some 650 million people on this earth it just doesn’t happen that way. We didn´t start Raincoat with a clear idea or game changing innovation but what we can do is to give to those individuals and organisations that have a plan. Our policy is simple – We support initiative that will create awareness and knowledge where it is low and we support solution-oriented water projects where our actions will make a real difference.

Raincoat launches digital presentation screens at Stockholm Junior Water Prize

Each year, the Stockholm Junior Water Prize (SJWP) congregates young scientists and innovators from around the world who have created new solutions to the planet’s growing water challenges.

All these brilliant young minds see opportunity and hope where others find only challenges and despair. This year 48 finalists gathered to present their cost-efficient and immediate solutions, applicable the world over.

For three years in a row The Raincoat Foundation has been hosting the SJWP Welcome dinner. This year, for the first time, the foundation also sponsored digital iPosters enabling the finalists to present their projects according to a set framework which not only gives a more vivid experience but also lets the projects live on for eternity on SJWP platforms such as Water Tank.

-It was wonderful to see the change that the iPosters did. They were very appreciated both by the jury and the finalists and made it easy for everyone to discover what the projects where all about. These are fantastic young kids with great
ideas and we are so happy to be able to contribute by sponsoring the iPosters, says Mikaela and Peter Granström, both founders of the Raincoat Foundation.
