Wetskills-Mozambique 2024: Innovating for Climate Resilience and Impact in Beira

Join us in the heart of Mozambique for an exploration of water innovation, aligned with the UN Habitat Conference on Climate Resilience. The Wetskills Foundation, in proud collaboration with the Government of Sofala Province, is delighted to announce the return of the Wetskills Challenge to Mozambique. This event, taking place from July 13 to 25, 2024, aims to unite a diverse cohort of local, regional, and international students, recent graduates, and young professionals. Together, we will tackle the urgent water challenges exacerbated by climate change, through collaborative and innovative solutions.

Set against the beautiful backdrop of Beira, a city in need of climate resilience, this edition of the Wetskills Challenge is an integral part of the global dialogue on sustainability. Participants will have the unique opportunity to engage directly with the themes of the UN Habitat Conference and the nation’s water challenges, bringing their fresh perspectives and innovative solutions to a global stage.

Honorable Cecilia Chamutota, a distinguished Wetskills alum, ambassador and current Secretary of State in the Province of Sofala, serves as a beacon of success and the transformative potential of the Wetskills experience. Having started her journey at the inaugural Mozambique challenge, Hon. Chamutota’s professional ascension underscores the significant impact and opportunities that await participants.

We invite ambitious bachelor’s, master’s, and PhD students, recent graduates, and young professionals passionate about water, climate, and sustainability to be part of this groundbreaking event. The Wetskills Challenge offers an unrivalled platform for experimental learning, networking, and innovation, encapsulated in our signature “pressure cooker” approach to problem-solving.  Seize this opportunity and apply now (use the link on the right).
