Dear Young Water Professionals and colleagues from the water sector,
It is a huge pleasure to host the 12th IWA Eastern European Young Water Professionals Conference in Riga, Latvia. I am honored to finally assemble Eastern European Young Water Professional commune in my hometown Riga to have an inspiring and creative time together.
Due to the growth of the population and urbanization all over the world, there are considerable challenges what the water sector will face in the future. Therefore, this conference is a great opportunity to meet young, active and innovative people who deal with similar challenges within the water sector. In terms of conference, an interdisciplinary and international collaboration will be developed to improve the overall knowledge and get new insight in recent researches.
To address the lack of new professionals that water sector is dealing last decade, this conference is a great possibility to spread the word on the uniqueness, importance, and future of professionals who are dealing with the most various problems related to water and wastewater.
Therefore, I warmly welcome you to take a part in this 12th IWA Eastern European Young Water Professionals Conference in Riga to expand not only your personal knowledge but also the overall significance of water sector and especially the role of young people to be part of this industry.
The young water professionals are the foundation of growing and wealthy society in future.

See you in Riga!
