Water Hub The Water Hub - a research and innovation centre- will form the setting for the first and, possibly, most exciting networking event yet – the ‘Water Olympics’. All (willing) delegates will be placed in teams which will then compete against each other in various interactive games involving, or related to, water. This is certainly going to be a fun evening of good spirited competition, and a great way to break the ice and get networking! We will leave Cape Town at 11.00 am in morning

The participants will acquire facilitation skills. These facilitation skills are useful in meetings, in collaborating with co-workers, partners and or communities ther stakeholders. The idea is to learn how to facilitate your meeting, conversation, discussion towards an outcome. The session will start with how to develop outcomes, which will subsequently follow with providing them an overview of facilitation tools and methods that will help reach the outcome, and will allow participants to practice developing outcomes and picking the best facilitation methods

How do competing water uses and demands work and what is the influence of culture and values? An integral part of a society’s cultural identity is the way water is used and valued. Often, cultural diversity and values are left out. The workshop aims to provide a platform to discuss incorporating culture and values into understanding competing water uses. This will be followed by a serious game that provides a physical representation of the basin through which a central river flows with several offtakes representing various water uses and demands. The game is used as an interactive tool aimed at illustrating the different and competing water uses and demand. The game will highlight the challenges associated with designing and sustaining collective action for water resources management, incorporating values and cultures.

How can end users play a key role in securing water resources? The aim of this proposed workshop is to have a working session which actively provides inputs and perspectives of YWPs from different sectors on how end-users including cities, utilities and industries can play a key role in securing water resources and their efficient use for the benefits of all water users across a catchment. The outputs of the discussion will inform the IWA Basin Action Agenda which is driven by the IWA and its members and partners.

How to develop a successful proposal? The participants will acquire proposal formulation and writing skills to successfully apply for grants and funds. Through drawing out the lessons learned of the various experiences that the group of organisers have, the session will uncover the secret of a successful proposal, how to apply, how to build up a proposal (structure, content, quantity and quality, conciseness, headers as pre-sent information), how to make your results well visible and understandable (creativity for data illustration) and how to highlight your key message. The top of the ice-cream: We will present sample national and international funding programs.

Should we invest in sustainability of water management before securing basic water supply and sanitation? Many young water professionals in developing countries are faced with the challenge to choose between two different approaches to water management: the convential (securing access) or sustainability (securing sustainability) approach. This workshop aims to provoke critical thinking towards both approaches, to enable young water professionals to make informed decisions during their career. Utilising a case study, group discussions, we will provoke a debate around advantages and disadvantages and initiate a dialogue on how the approaches can be brought closer together.

Is there a need for a new sustainable accreditation scheme for industry? The aim of the workshop is to debut and discuss the necessity of a new sustainable accreditation scheme for industry: the Clean Water Accreditation Programme or CWA Check.This debate amongst water industry professionals from a multitude of backgrounds hopes to identify potential challenges and means to tackle them as a group. The outcomes of will help create a group of professionals while reporting back to the industries that the CWA check will be primarily implemented on to.

How to develop efficient networks? The realization of efficient water networks involves the coming together of a range of diverse factors: incorporation of smart technologies, effective delivery of water, financial viability, low carbon impact etc. Key protagonists; policy maker, network designer, capital funder and end user, impact which factors are prioritized and ultimately how the network is developed. This workshop aims to develop an understanding of how the key protagonists lead the development of water networks across different contexts, by engaging the delegates in an interactive workshop, exploring how efficient water networks are developed from a big picture perspective.

How to develop ethical leadership? Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals related to water and sanitation is dependent on good governance frameworks; without ethical leadership this cannot be achieved. This session aims to develop a basic theoretical and practical understanding of ethical leadership in the water sector to ensure that the next generation of leaders understands what it means to be an ethical leader, especially when it comes to the provision of water and sanitation. This will be done by explaining the theoretical underpinnings of ethical leadership, followed by an in-depth, critical, solution-oriented case study exercise

How to build a network of professionals sharing knowledge and experiences on addressing water scarcity in cities? Many countries in the world suffer water scarcity with significant intensity. In these areas, innovative water management solutions are required. Water scarce countries are good examples to investigate the impact of the use of alternative water sources, improved water management and other innovative tools. Even though the challenges and potential solutions are common, communication and knowledge sharing has not been fully implemented yet. This workshop will serve as a platform to jumpstart collaboration efforts between professionals from water scarce countries through sharing experiences and current and future challenges

How do we spark and lead innovation? Innovation is “something new that makes an impact”. But where the impact is happening or how the impact is delivered is the unknown. The workshop aims to consolidate the experiences and aspirations of young water professionals in making innovations happen in a Global Innovation Map and stimulate the global innovation effort among YWPs through continuing collaboration in an ambitious effort to develop a high-level Water Innovation Framework.

How to work across the silo and communicate with the public? All too often water professionals work in “silos”, providing inappropriate solutions not accounting for public needs. As the water sector’s future leaders, YWPs need to develop and manage water infrastructure in a way that encourages public ownership. This session aims to capacitate YWPs with the tools and problem solving skills to effectively consider and engage the public without technical jargon and intimidating communicating techniques. Aurecon has been using Design Led Thinking as a tool to design with the end user in mind. The tools and communication techniques are a useful way to work across silos and design for public needs.

With Cape Town - a water scarce city - facing a serious driught, a range of measures have been implemented to avoid the City running out of water. Using Cape Town practical as a case study that all delegates will be able to relate too, this interactive panel of both local and international experts will discuss, answer questions and begin to identify the 'lessons learnt' from how droughts have been handled both in Cape Town and around the world.
