Clean Water and Ecosystem Restoration-1200x600
A closer look at subtheme ‘Clean Water and Ecosystem Restoration’

Ecosystems degradation have been a globally recognised challenge. Drinkable and swimmable rivers also draw the attention in Europe, due to the declining water quality.

To fully understand their impact and develop solutions and practices to safeguard their future, AIWW deepens this topic in our subtheme ‘Clean Water and Ecosystem Restoration’.

In collaboration with our community and beyond, we explore current global challenges, their impact on ecosystems and integrated solutions developed in recent times.

Amsterdam International Water Web is evolving

The pandemic made us reposition what we have on offer. From a bi-annual event (Amsterdam International Water Week) we developed many extra possibilities to ‘meet’ and interact, like webinars, virtual meetings and social media. These new propositions deserve an evolved visual identity, so we launched an appealing design with a resilient look & feel. Recently, we even renamed ourselves to Amsterdam International Water Web, as we are a web for our community. A sharing platform with 24/7 availability. Abbrevation’s the same, AIWW, easy. One of our latest efforts is our new website. Please have a look, we hope you enjoy it!
How determination and ambition make the impossible possible

“What a roller coaster journey!” said our blogger Rasha Hassan, when we asked her a few questions about being a Young Water Professional (YWP).

Read her blog, opening up about being a YWP, all the challenges she is facing and how she deals with them.

A mustread if you want to kickstart your career! Also for ‘the establishment’: read Rasha’s blog if you want to make the most of any collaboration with the youth in the water sector.

Timeline of important water events

As water professionals we need to stay current by regularly updating and enhancing our skills, knowledge and know-how, by joining events and conferences worldwide. Here’s an overview of events we would recommend participating. Please let us know if there are events missing and what’s on your radar.
