Blue Innovation Track for Advanced Water Leaders

Blue Innovation Track is an advanced development, training and co-creation platform for mid-to-high level water sector officials who are seeking to sharpen their leadership practices and convey more action-based examples for their team members and colleagues. Immerse yourself in innovative methods and specialized practices of leadership development to benefit your own targets, team objectives and your organization’s contribution to the sector.  In Blue Innovation Track, you will become part of a social learning community to generate a new wave of teamwork and impact. Are you ready to explore the benefits of joining H2O-People’s first Blue Innovation Track for Advanced Water Leaders?

New ways of working for new challenges

To create a positive future workplace in the water sector, people at all levels need change their functional perception of what water-sector work really is, what it comprises, and how we can better collaborate across geographical boundaries and professional disciplines. New and intense challenges are emerging faster that forecast when we look at climate change impacts. And we are already experiencing the need to work with less resources but with more diverse people and organizations – including through the evolving professional tools born out of digitalization.

Blue Innovation Track is positioned to tackle a range of questions that advanced leaders need to take into account in such a highly interdependent and complex workplace of the future. We will co-create through shared expertise that will drive a positive and productive workplace. How can this process be best facilitated? How do we guide professionals through spectrums of uncertainties? How can we create a positive flow of knowledge transfer and development through a more holistic approach? What innovations should we identify and maximize to carry teams, organizations and the sector forward? Our participants will be professionally guided through these considerations to generate unique strategy-based solutions that are ready to be applied in future scenarios.

From our sector experience and synergies

This new Track for advanced professionals is born from the success of our European Junior Water Programme (EJWP), in which we provide an integrated social learning environment for young professionals and their organizations. So now we are pleased to offer this Advanced Leadership Programme to facilitate a more effective coordinated approach to face new and changing scenarios linked to water resources and environmental health. Blue Innovation Track is set to deliver this methodology, platform and working methods for all of our future!
