PRESS RELEASE – Water Dragons is Recognised


Future Water’s ‘Water Dragons’ competition has long been recognised as an important initiative driving change and innovation in the water sector. We are delighted to announce that Water Dragons has now been granted a trademark, recognising the value that the initiative has brought to the water industry.

Matt Foster, Water Services Director at Hydrosave – Water Dragons sponsor said:

“At Hydrosave we passionately believe in the power of human ingenuity to push the boundaries of what we think is possible. We work in an industry where customer expectations rightly drive the need to find answers to both new and existing challenges, and at the same time, we know if ‘we always do what we have always done, we will always get what we have always got”.

Innovation remains the key to unlocking the status quo, to learning from the challenges of adjacent sectors, and to implementing truly revolutionary solutions. Hydrosave are delighted to have been a long-term sponsor of Water Dragons, and continue to help promote the identification, and ultimately the adoption, of fresh ideas to better-allow us all to address our industry challenges in the most efficient and sustainable manner possible.

Alastair Moseley, Future Water Board member commented: 

Alastair MoseleyFuture Water has always been committed to promoting innovation in the water industry and wider water sector and established our Water Dragons Competition 15 years ago to stimulate interest and showcase innovation. This has been a hugely successful enterprise with well over 300 innovations being presented at our competition heats in that time, and many of our winners, and runners up for that matter, going on to create successful transformative businesses both here in the UK and across the World”.

Water Dragons is now a patented operation and we are already growing it internationally, having just completed our first year in partnership with the Canadian High Commission to introduce water innovation in North America to the UK market, and vice versa.”
