UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education is organizing a 60th anniversary conference on 24 April 2017. The theme of the conference is 'The impact of UNESCO-IHE in a changing landscape'.

A celebration of our 60 years of water education, this conference will explore how the Institute must adapt to the changing geopolitical, economic and cultural global landscape to meet challenging future water issues.

The conference will bring together donors, partners, employees, alumni, students and beneficiaries of the Institute for a lively and forward-thinking discussion about the role of UNESCO-IHE in a changing landscape.

The morning session will reflect on how the Institute started and where we are currently active. In this session we will look back to our origins, focusing on our work in Bangladesh, and map the course and approach to date, encompassing our activities with other countries and continents.

In the afternoon, we will look ahead and consider the future challenges facing not just our Institute, but also other organisations with a role in overseas capacity development. We will project forward, considering the changes we need to take to ensure we remain relevant, resilient and responsive in effecting positive change.

This event is for invited guest only.
