The Congress is a Place for Learning

Whether this is your first time at a Congress, or you have been around a few IWA Congresses, IWA wishes to provide its young water professionals with guidance to the congress’s learning and networking opportunities.

Emerging Water Leaders Forum

Join the Emerging Water Leaders in this forum to answer 3 big questions posed by the Keynotes of this Congress for 2030 and beyond. The forum will attract young and emerging water leaders from a multi-disciplinary background. Using teaching and applying techniques to break complex issues down in smaller components, you will practice your problem solving skills whilst developing answers to the questions posed by senior and experienced professionals.
