Event 20 February: The Road to VIA Water

First public get together for VIA Water, and you are invited!

VIA Water is commissioned by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs as one of five knowledge platforms for each key priority in Dutch overseas development policy. It is a programme that aims to identify innovative solutions for water problems facing cities in seven African countries: Benin, Ghana, Kenya, Mali, Mozambique, Rwanda and South Sudan.

On the 20th of February, VIA Water organizes its very first official public get together. Since the start of the programme, VIA Water has received many questions on how the programme works. People are keen to know what sort of innovations the programme is looking for, what the procedure for the VIA Water fund is like and how they can contribute to the programme. In this event, VIA Water will get into all of those questions in an interactive way.

The event will consist of a short introduction of the programme, and a ‘how-to’ session in which VIA Water explains how you can become an active participant. Next, your creative mind needs to get to work by solving one of the cases presented to you. During four workshops you are given the opportunity to find inspiring connections and discover the need for working in a community to improve your ideas. From 12:30pm onwards, a lunch will be provided.

You can register for the event here.
