Wetskills-The Netherlands, 3 November 2023 (by Tala Jafar, Youth Hub for Waters)
Have you ever wondered what a young water participant typical day in wetskills looks like? Well, let me take you in a tour of my day.
I began with breakfast in the hostel before catching the train to go to Hoge school. The weather was more beautiful than yesterday.
After our arrival at the school, my team and I had a meeting with the case owners where we covered a wide range of crucial topics pertaining to our case.
Then, we had a presentation on paper writing. We gained useful skills from this session that will help us share our findings.
The day took an exciting turn as we gathered for an innovation round. This session provided an opportunity for participants to share their innovative solutions and receive feedback from fellow Wetskills participants. What made this experience truly remarkable was the diverse group of individuals brought together from different countries, each with their unique perspectives, experiences, and solutions to water challenges.
Following our final day at the Hoge school, we visited Skyline and took a tour of the neighborhood. It was also my first time riding a bicycle, and I finished my day by the Erasmus Bridge, which is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful place in Rotterdam to relax after a long day.
