Dubai 2021: from WorldExpo Shanghai to Dubai!
Wetskills Foundation and partners are delighted to announce a very unique event: Dubai 2021. Wetskills will go back to where it started in Shanghai 2010: The Netherlands Pavilion of the WorldExpo. On 1 November 2021 Wetskills and partners will organise a day full of workshops including the Finals & Awarding of Wetskills-Dubai 2021, the first Wetskills event in the United Arab Emirates. The Wetskills teams will present their ideas with a two minute pitch, Q&A and a poster on 4 November 2021. The winning team will be awarded by the jury later.
Teams of students and young water professionals (with diverse backgrounds, nationalities and experiences) will work on real life water cases in an exciting two-week programme. Their main challenge: to think out-of-the-box and develop innovative, but realistic concepts. All participants will have access to the WorldExpo terrain to present the solutions, join the professional workshops on resilience and water and visit other pavilions as well.
"It has indeed been a fruitful, joyous and amazing time as the 26 participants spend two weeks enjoying each others company, learning,exploring and finding ways to work as a team together and solve six pressured, difficult cases. This has in fact been an experience to remember for each and everyone participant for 2019! (Wetskills Alumni)"
