NoWNET organizes a webinar in the WWWeek At Home
on 27th August 10am CET (17:00 Japan time)!

WWWeek At Home is a new series of virtual sessions that lets anyone tap into the knowledge of some of the greatest water and climate experts. It was born as the alternative area of the regular World Water Week, which had to be cancelled due to COVID-19 and as an umbrella under which organizations can host virtual adaptations of their World Water Week-approved sessions. The programme covers no less than 120 sessions on a broad range of topics between 24th – 28th August 2020. All sessions are open to anyone, free of charge.
