The Word Organization of Dredging Associations (WODCON) XXIII will take place from May 16 to 20, 2022, at the Tivoli Congress Centre, Copenhagen, Denmark, with the theme ‘Dredging is changing.’
Johan Pennekamp, chair of the WODCON XXIII organizing committee, explained the thinking behind the theme by saying, “Apart from stating that our way of dredging is changing – just think: advances in dredging technology, novel solutions for adaptation to climate change, nature-based approaches, circular design, benefits/value for all stakeholders, corporate social responsibility, sustainable approach – these three words actually have a more philosophical depth too.”
He added, “Dredging always means changing the environment whether it is capital dredging or even maintenance. Dredging always aims to create a new or improved situation and this aspect is quite often not recognized or appreciated!”
