The Annual Symposium



View the 2016 symposium site >>

One of the program requirements for students in the WSSS program is to participate in the planning and execution of the annual WSSS symposium. The symposium is traditionally organized and executed under the leadership of students in their second year of the program.


The annual symposium has been an integral part of the WSSS program since 2010. Each symposium since has featured a specific aspect of water issues in the world as a theme, around which speakers and presenters organize their materials.


Students that do research projects as part of the R Track of the program present their research at the symposium. In addition, the symposium features speakers and presenters from public, private, and non-governmental sectors, as well as panel discussions and networking opportunities.
