Join our session at this year's SIWI World Water Week At Home!

NEWAVE: Innovative Training Network for water governance paradigm shifts

This session presents NEWAVE’s research ambitions, its training programme and network, and it is primarily targeted to researchers in the field of water governance, water practitioners and policy makers. The central focus of this session is on the training and educational frontiers of water governance as a science-policy field.

Participants are invited to join a conversation on what the main water governance training and educational priorities in our field should be and how these combine with NEWAVE’s objectives. An interactive discussion led by NEWAVE researchers will stimulate critical, innovative, and trans-disciplinary thinking over water governance approaches and training, and pave the way for future collaborations.

A digital poll will be used to collect answers to crucial questions (e.g. what are the skills that future water leaders should have; which innovative training methods can provide these skills; etc). The received answers will be discussed by the session organisers and the participants.
