Co-Chairman - Programme Committee
On behalf of IWA POLAND, it is my pleasure to invite you to join us the 2nd IWA Polish Young Water Professionals Conference 2020 to be held in Warsaw, the capital city of Poland.
Particularly, I would like to encourage young water professionals to participate in this event. The YWP conferences provide a unique opportunity to share your knowledge, meet with other YWPs and learn from senior water professionals. The conference will consist of workshops, technical sessions and a poster sesion, everthing in the climate similar to the specialized conferences organized by IWA. So this may be the perfect first step in your professional carieer!
The main motto of the conference is “Emerging Technologies in Water and Wastewater Sector” in response to the growing demand for more efficient and sustainable solutions for water supply and wastewater disposal. Ultimately, we should achieve the closed water loop with recovery of other resources to be in line with the circular economy concept.
While thinking about this challenge, keep in mind that the innovation in the water sector was born in the city over 130 years ago! Then Warsaw became a member of an elite group of six European cities equipped with modern water supply and sewer systems. I am convinced that the coming conference should refer to this tradition and be held in the spirit of innovation and inspiration for new ideas.
I look forward to seeing you in Warsaw!
