Wetskills-India (Kerala) 2019

About The Event

Wetskills Events Wave

Last year Kerala faced devastating floods. New concepts are necessary to safe the people, economy and environment of Kerala against floods, which probabilities are increasing due to climate change. “Integrated Water Management and Flood Control is the central theme of this Wetskills event in India. Last year a so-called DRR team went to Kerala and gave the government some advises to improve the integrated Water Management in the area (report ‘Kerala Integrated Water Resource Management’). In this Wetskills event, the teams will go further with the recommendations of this report.

This fourth Wetskills event in India is aligned to a high-level business delegation visit from the Netherlands to Kerala (Kochi) on 18 October. Most probably the participants will stay in Kochi for this event. The results of the Wetskills will be presented during this visit to the delegates, but also to the Indian government in order to create steps forward.

Are you a student or young professional from The Netherlands, India or another country, who wants to make a difference in the Indian water sector? Would you like to experience woring in international teams and experiencing the culture of Indian subcontinent? Do you want to work on challenging water issues and get to present your ideas to a high-profile audience at a business delegation from India and The Netherlands (18 October) to Kerala and also the Indian government? This is your chance! Wetskills Foundation initiated a fourth Wetskills Water Challenge edition in India (see for the first edition: link)!

We are looking for students and Young Professionals from local and international universities and organisations  with a passion for water. We are not only looking to participants with only a water background but much broader!
