WILEurope 2017 Porto
September 24 – 29, 2017
In partnership with EIP Water and Aguas do Porto, WIL Europe Porto 2017 took place from September 24 – 29, 2017 in Porto, Portugal. 50 young leaders and mentors from over 15 countries were brought together to build capacity to collaborate within the European context for a resilient water future. Hosted at a beautiful location on the coast of Portugal, north of Porto, WIL Europe Porto explored the city of Porto and its water system as its learning grounds. Unique to this WIL was incorporating the young leaders training as a main event during Porto Water Innovation Week, which involved the active participation of these young leaders in the European Innovation Partnership Water Conference as chairs and moderators, with an exhibit showcasing their water scenarios of the future.
