About Wetskills

Wetskills Events Wave

Wetskills uses a new way of authentic learning and international networking for students and young professionals with a passion for water. The Challenges take place worldwide, usually during international water related events. In multidisciplinairy, international teams, the participants work on real life cases from companies and (governmental) organisations. Their challenge: to think out-of-the-box and develop realistic concepts.

Due to corona, the event programs had to be changed to be corona-proof. We are happy that we succeeded, so we were able to organize some exciting online and hybrid events, like Wetskills-The Netherlands 2021 at the AIWW in Amsterdam (Oct 24 – Nov 5) and W@tskills-India 2021 (Nov 22 – dec 3). First event in 2022 was Wetskills-United Arab Emirates 2022 (Jan 5 – 16) with our final Jubilee Celebration at the WorldExpo in Dubai.

Now on the program, we have events in Romania (June 24July 6), South Korea (Aug 22Sept 2), the Palestinian Territories (Aug 25Sept 6) and more. Join us!

 

Wetskills once started at the Shanghai WorldExpo 2010, so we made a ‘bridge’ between the two WorldExpos, with exciting events in many different countries.

WetsNext works on follow-up projects of Wetskills concepts with the partners involved. Main aim: impact with new ideas! The Wetskills Foundation is an independent foundation with a broad international network in the water sector, based in The Hague, The Netherlands.
