10 Years of Wetskills

10 years ago, on 27 May 2010 the first Wetskills Water Challenge ever was held in Shanghai. Since, Wetskills literally traveled over the globe: making friends, co-creating ideas & solutions, contributing to water-events and making impact with 44 events in 23 countries worldwide. 

Wetskills Foundation celebrated this in an appropriate ‘Corona-proof’ way: at home, but with the possibility to be connected to all our friends around the globe! This session invited the organizers of the 44 events to join a digital ZOOM meeting (team members, local hosts, and close events organisers). Watch the Movie to thank the organisers.
