Young Water Professionals’ Debate on Climate and Water Management

A highlight of the Water Pavilion, the Young Water Professionals’ debate will be a lively discussion between our enthusiastic future leaders and recognized senior experts.

Youth are crucial agents in the implementation of climate-resilient water management due to their potential to drive innovation, raise awareness, and mobilize communities. The motion: “This house contends that traditional methods aren’t working, and we need to rapidly switch to drastic new strategies for climate and water management.”
