Also I inform you that for all those who not be able to participate personally, they can attend the workshop via e-distance connection.

The key theme of this workshop will be to look for effective ways of cooperation with other Specialist Groups dealing with the Evolution of Water Culture and History. We will look for joint actions and perspectives of existing Associations, Groups and other organizations including the Water Museums, dealing with water matters, from antiquity to the present day and what and how we learnt from the past.
