Local Water Solutions for Global Challenges

This online programme will give a comprehensive overview of global water challenges and the means to identify local solutions. It will present the case on how water is essential for life and for sustainable development.

Managing water well is essential for the international community to deliver the promise of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Without this, most of the Sustainable Development Goals cannot be achieved. Every drop matters.

The programme will equip participants with the understanding and abilities to become more confident within this crucial field.

Worldview Dimension

The Worldview dimension is an online course where you have the chance to become more conscious of how your own worldview and value system affect your perceived needs and the way you might propose and design solutions in any given situation.

By identifying a series of valid perspectives, worldviews and value systems and putting them into context with each other, rather than seeing them as mutually exclusive or contradictory, we are taking the important first step to being able to facilitate the complex multi-stakeholder dialogues upon which the local, regional and global transition to sustainability and regenerative cultures will depend.
