As part of the YIP project, SRH University Heidelberg, KNUST and UNIVA are jointly planning five project-based events: Hackathon (online), Workshops and webinar series (online), Study Visit in Germany (SRH), Practical in Ghana (KNUST), and a final conference (online). The group of participants includes students from engineering and technical studies at the partner universities.

The students will learn about the global dimension of water conflicts and develop innovative technical solutions for sustainable water treatment using the example of polluted water in Ghana (e.g. Okyi-AmisaRiver), which contribute to the prevention and reduction of local conflicts of water usage. Moreover, the students will work in international teams developing a complete cycle of a practical project, gaining experience in intercultural project management under real practical conditions.

Furthermore, the teachers will present different techniques and methodological approaches, while the students carry out the creative process and implementation of the projects. In this project the students are the main actors, whereas the teachers play a more supportive and knowledge mediating role.
