Strategic thinkers and decision makers from our partner organisations organize themselves into a think-tank. This think-tank approach reflects the core of EWSI which is tailored to the principals of Social Learning.


Think-tank sessions aim to facilitate not only knowledge transfer but also co-learning. Through a process of collective exploration members benefit from the diversity of knowledge and insights provided by representatives from all corners of the water sector. Leading experts from outside the water sector are also invited to the sessions to provide fresh perspectives. Comprehensive group processes are used to reveal and test participant’s assumptions and facilitate generation and analysis of alternatives to ascertain whether or not adaptation is needed. These think-tank sessions provide participants with new building blocks for their response strategies.
