Join the world of water – for development, for jobs, for life!
The world of water is more than the lakes, the rivers and seas that shimmer blue in our landscapes and Instagram updates. It is also the water underground, moisture in the soils, a basic human right, a source of conflict prevention, a pre-requisite for food security and top-level politics. To get a glimpse of all these aspects, join Stockholm International Water Institute’s (SIWI) inspiration event to give you an idea of how we work with all these aspects and why and how you should get involved in the world of water.
Afterwards, those interested in continuing talks over affordable drinks and food are welcome to the pub of the Science Faculty Club at Gréens villa. Entrance requires membership of the Stockholm University Student Union, or being the guest of a member. There will probably be a few members at the seminar to show the way to the venue.
