Project news

The water@leeds team would like to invite PGRs to participate in the 'Clean Water and Sanitation' Global Shared Learning: Classroom 2024 programme led by Tecnologico de Monterrey Mexico.

This initiative is open to PGR students interested in developing their global citizen skills.  The programme is aligned with the University of Leeds vision of being a truly international university with global reach and impact.
