Their paths came across after joining the Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) master program for Arab & German Young Professionals in 2008. The founders are strongly linked to the water and environment sector in Germany and the MENA region. We believe in knowledge exchange and technology transfer in multicultural contexts to solve the vicious problems hindering the principles of sustainable development. The WEE Pros pool of specialists and sustainability experts is streamlined through recruitment of the German-Arab Master Programs (GAMP) alumni
