Dear young water professionals,
It is my honor to invite you to the 11th IWA Eastern European Young Water Professionals Conference, which is going to take place in the capital of the Czech Republic, Prague. It will be my pleasure to welcome here colleagues and friends I met in previous years of this conference as well as I will enjoy meeting the new ones.
Nowadays, the value of water is well known not only by water professionals, but also by general public. And I do not mean the fact that water is very often more expensive than beer in Czech restaurants. The drought slowly begins to bother our country. The Czech Republic due to its location is not only the heart of Europe, but also the roof of Europe. All our rivers flow out from the country. Therefore, we have to protect this water and after usage we have to treat it enough that it can also be enjoyed by surrounding countries.
Czech inhabitants are proud to be called as a bridge between east and west. From the previous conferences I know no more bridge is needed. Participants are coming not only from eastern Europe, but from all over the world. I wish the same to happen also next year. Water is a topic for all and water as a resource should be for all.
See you in Prague!
