About The Event

Wetskills Events Wave

Join us to Semarang, Java, Indonesia!!

Wetskills will organize its second water challenge in Indonesia (after the first one in 2011). Wetskills Foundation and our local and international partners invite Bachelor, Master, PhD students and recent graduates in Indonesia, Asia and abroad to apply for this Wetskills Challenge programme. This edition of Wetskills will take the participants to the Indonesian Experience of Semarang and Pekalongan in Central Java with its culture and pressing water challenges. The presentations will be aligned to and in close cooperation with the International Water Conference organized by our local host: Sultan Agung Islamic University (UNISSULA) on 14 September 2018.

To all who are interested in pressing and urgent water challenges of Indonesia (soil subsidence, non-revenue water, sanitation, flood protection, wetland conservation, dredging…) and the cultural heritage of Semarang and Central Java (Kota Semarang (old city), Borobudur and Prambanan near Yogyakarta): this is your chance! We are looking for local and international students and Young Professionals, who are passionate about water and excited to work in mixed teams for transdisciplinary water solutions.
