19 Participants from 8 counties met in Germany for a 4 days preparation training for the new Worldskills competition “Water Technology”. Information about the occupation, the work and the needed skills were given. 11 countries will participate in this new skill in Kazan 2019.
Worldskills Germany, DWA,Festo and Adiro made this event happen. It is agreed to offer such a training each year. A water skill standard is growing and introduced to various countries through this initiative.
Water worth it – a slogan from WEF/US – water worth qualified young people for the next generation.
From 2004-2009 I worked for GIZ in Palestine (part time). Training coordination was the main task.
We made many trainings and trained the trainers as well.
In 2007 Nadim Mulhem and I developed the idea to set up an local association. It was a long way – at the start I pushed it and explainted the concept – we got many supporters – they brought the idea into life.
It is nice to see the association moving. The GIZ support this – well done.
A new website is born. After six hours learning of the Jimdo Toolbox (great software) the site was installed. My first website I did in early www time in 1996 for DWA. I took me weeks to learn HTML.
“Learning in Competitions” is the content of this new website. I like these Water Skills Competitions. As a “midwife” of this German initiatives at the IFAT’s and in Worldskills I like to document these events and to explain it to water trainers and educators.
This website will be the source for “Water Technology Competitions” .
