The Water Institute of Southern Africa’s (WISA) Young Water Professionals (YWP)  Empowerment Platform invites all like-minded young professionals in the field to its 6th Biennial Conference to be held for the first time in the KwaZulu-Natal Province. The event will take place from the 20th to the 23rd of October 2019 at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre (Durban ICC) and promises to be the best edition thus far.

The theme for this year’s event is “My Water, My Business” and seeks to shine a light on the business side of water while also reminding attendees that everyone uses water and as such, water management is everyone’s business. The multi-disciplinary programme comprising of workshops, presentations, technical tours and networking sessions caters for everyone in the field and also aims to establish and nurture collaboration partnerships which are essential for a water-scarce country.

This is an open invite to all young water professionals. Whether you are a researcher, a water practitioner, an academic, a business minded individual or you simple have an interest in any aspect of water management, we urge you to put your water hat on, get your briefcase and join us in making water our business. See you in Durban.
