This edition of Wetskills will take the participants to the nice city of Hangzhou with the beautiful XiHu (West Lake). This event will be organized in close cooperation with the largest water event worldwide: Aquatech China in Shanghai (3-5 June) and the finals will be organized during a special sessions at the Celebration of 40 years of friendship between Shanghai and Rotterdam (14 June). So Wetskills will also stay some days in booming Shanghai!

Costs

Participation costs for international participants or Chinese participants without accommodation in Hangzhou are 375 euros or equivalent in Chinese yuan (excl. 21% VAT). The fee includes accommodation, programme costs, supervision, some social activities, field trips, working locations, presentations by experts and the awarding event at the Aquatech Shanghai exhibition & congress. It does not include transport, some meals, other daily costs. Participants are responsible for their own travel expenses (like plane tickets and some local travel), meals during working days and other personal costs.

The fee for local participants, who do not need accommodation, are 95 euros or equivalent in Chinese yuan, including the above arrangements, except for the accommodation in Hangzhou.

During past editions participants often successfully arranged financial compensation for their Wetskills participation from their university or employer. We therefore strongly encourage applicants to inquire about funding opportunities to compensate the costs (university mobility funds, travel allowance etc.).

Case 1: Waste Free School Shanghai

Case owner: Dutch Wavemakers

The Discovery Bay International School in Hong Kong started implementing a program for plastic free breaks. This inspired the Dutch Wavemakers to adopt a similar model in the Netherlands and to spread it all over the world. For Shanghai, the goals is to design and implement a program for Plastic Free Schools before the Winter Olympics in 2022. Pilot locations and ambassadors are already selected. Working with a local school, how can the model from Hong Kong and the Netherlands be adapted to create the first Plastic Free School in Shanghai?

案例1:上海无垃圾学校

案例所有者:荷兰水科技弄潮儿机构

香港愉景湾国际学校开始实施一个无塑料计划。这促启发了荷兰水科技弄潮儿机构在荷兰采用类似的模式,并将其推广到世界各地。上海的目标是在2022年冬奥会之前设计和实施一个无塑料学校的计划。目前试点地点和大使已选定。通过与当地的学校合作,香港和荷兰的模式如何能适应上海并建立第一个无塑料学校?

Case 2: Synergies between climate mitigation and climate adaptation in the port of Rotterdam

Case owner: Rotterdam Maritime Capital of Europe

Rotterdam has an ambitious climate action programme, which aims to realise a climate neutral port in 2050. However, climate adaptation is a concern as well; climate hazards like sea level rise, droughts, extreme rainfall and heat waves may affect port functioning, and make our mitigation measures less effective. Therefore, we are looking for synergies between climate mitigation and adaptation. What measures can Rotterdam take to reach our climate goals and increase climate resilience at the same time?

案例2 :鹿特丹港气候缓解和气候适应之间的协同作用

案件所有者:欧洲海事之都鹿特丹

鹿特丹有一个雄心勃勃的气候行动计划,旨在于2050年成为气候中和港口。然而,气候适应也是一个问题;气候危害例如海平面上升,干旱,极端降雨和热浪等气候灾害可能会影响港口的运作,并使我们的减缓措施效果降低。因此,我们正在寻求气候减缓和适应之间的协同作用。鹿特丹可以采取哪些措施来实现我们的气候目标并同时提高气候适应能力?
