I remember lively the vast area of the World Expo 2010 in
Now, four years later, I find myself again participating in a Wetskills Challenge. This time as a so-called Young Water Professional, to the South Africa 2014 Edition. The Chinese water students have made place for young water experts from South Africa and Mozambique. The Pavilion at the Expo for the WISA Conference is in the latest World Cup’s Mbombela Stadium.
The concept is roughly the same: international teams with people from a wide variety of backgrounds in the water sector, an intense and great teambuilding weekend, pressure-cooker problem-solving while battling a lack of time and sleep, information gaps and differing cultural perspectives.
The Wetskills concept is great, addictive even. I wonder what the WISA Conference next week will bring. I hope I may enjoy it as much as I enjoyed
