Rivers, deltas, and estuaries are part and form specific ecosystems composed of ecological and physical characteristics, humans and human activities, plants, and animals.

These ecosystems have been rapidly changed due to human interventions, often planned according to economic interests without a systemic approach considering the various actors affected. The event gathers international experts from different fields (ecology, biology, anthropology, urban planning, history, heritage conservation, architecture, water management, hydrology, and artists) to reflect upon current and future challenges for water bodies. The aim is to start the construction of a shared toolkit of methodologies and approaches to tackle water-related challenges. The conversation will be based on the audio-video material (30 minutes) created by the core partners through Water Walks along several water basins all over the world. The discussion will be held in front of an audience of students and water practitioners
