See you there: The 2021 Danube Water Conference (#2021DWC) starts today. It's virtual, yet as good as live.

At 12:30 CEST, the opening session will be on. Winston Yu (World Bank), Walter Kling (IAWD) and Elisabeth Gruber (Austrian Ministry of Finance) will welcome a truly international audience and introduce opening keynote speaker Dr. Kala Vairavamoorthy, CEO of the International Water Association, who will present the needs and challenges of “Building a Resilient and Secure Water Sector”, kicking off three consecutive afternoons of two-track conference action.

Lean back in your chair, enjoy being there, and you will realize that our community has indeed come a very long way from the early days of the COVID pandemic, when we all gathered on frugal meeting platforms for crisis webinars plagued with shaky connections.

As good as "live"
