Collective thinking and sharing of experiences were be the core of the workshop delivering its value added. We grouped looking for economists, social scientists, water managers, blue stakeholders and knowledge brokers, including young professionals able to bring fresh ideas into the debate.

As a participant, you were asked to leave your “official” jacket at the entrance of the workshop and freely share ideas, contributing to the collective learning process that the workshop offered.

The workshop is an independent initiative of the organizing partners not depending on any institution.
Participants are kindly expected to cover their own travel costs and to contribute with a participation fee (covering lunches, coffee breaks, diners) upon their registration.

Inclunding young professional

We were particularly interested in involving young professionals that can bring fresh ideas and perspectives on future challenges, methods, tools and approaches.

Thanks to the support of the European Junior Water Programme (EJWP)  , the workshop has been part of the  Bootcamp of EJWP on the role of social and economic approaches in water management.
We financially supported (travel and accommodation costs, free participation) a small group of selected young professionals in order to  (social and economic) approaches and experiences of particular relevance to blue transition.
