As the Young Expert Programme (YEP) members on the OKP Bridging the Water project, we would like to end this youth month by sharing our experiences in the project thus far. We have been able to collaborate and share experiences with many young students, locally and internationally through the living labs – in person and virtually. It has been amazing to be a part of a project that aims to extend and share knowledge across various work packages to strengthen the water education and training in South Africa. Given the many challenges facing the youth of South Africa, it has been a great experience to contribute to a dynamic project such as the Bridging The Water project. We hope that in the coming months we will be able to continue to share knowledge through the institutionalization and dissemination of the outcomes of the project to date. In doing so, we hope to encourage more collaborations and networking. Happy Youth Month!
Bridging the Water is part of the Orange Knowledge Programme.
