GET TWO IN ONE: In 2021 IAH Congress will be held in Brussels, Belgium and São Paulo, Brazil
As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic we were not able to hold our congress in São Paulo in 2020. Instead we will have two congresses in 2021, in São Paulo and in Brussels. Brazil and Belgium are coordinating efforts to put forward a unique IAH experience to create an opportunity for many more people to participate.
6-10 Sep 2021 – Brussels, Belgium
48th IAH Congress – IAH 2021 – Inspiring Groundwater
IAH 2021 – Inspiring Groundwater. As a result of the Covid-19 we are not able to hold our congress in Sao Paulo in 2020. Instead we will have two congresses in 2021, in Sao Paulo and in Brussels. Brazil and Belgium are coordinating efforts to put forward a unique IAH experience to create an opportunity for many more people to participate.
The history of the world shows us that water and groundwater have constantly inspired mankind to develop techniques for the production of drinking water, to transport water to people, to control and manage watercourses, to the search for new sources and to combat scarcity. Access to safe water in sufficient quantities is essential to mankind, for prosperity and economic development.
Let the past inspire us to prepare a better future
Let our failures inspire us to constantly improve our techniques.
Let research inspire us to turn challenges into opportunities, and to make groundwater part of the solution towards a society without fossil energy sources.
Let our children inspire us to give our grandchildren a better planet
In 2021, we’ll also celebrate together the 65th anniversary of the IAH … and the 20th anniversary of our Belgian chapter. Did you know that the first president of IAH was Belgian? Belgium is a small country, but we have a lot to give… to the organization of the congress, and we’ll also do our best to make you discover some aspects of our culture, our history, our architecture, and our gastronomy. You are all welcome to join us and to learn from others, to exchange and to transfer knowledge, to learn to know people, to build solutions.
Brussels, September 6th : we’ll be there. Will you?
