The central topic is the interaction between learning and the hybridization of knowledge and gender. It lies at the interaction between:
• Participatory and learning processes in hydrology and sustainable development, and
• Gender as an essential dimension in solving societal hydrological challenges.

This session concerns both the aspects of Education (learning or training process) and Research (participatory process). Papers attesting to an educational experience with learners, a participatory experience with managers and stakeholders, or a more conceptual research activity are welcome.
This session allows us to share questions such as:
• How is consideration of gender (power relationship, man-woman relationship, etc.) an essential and powerful dimension in the sustainable development of our territories in connection with the management of water resources throughout the world?
• How to make water and sustainable development stakeholders aware of the relevance of integrating the relational dynamics of gender in participatory and decision-making processes?
• How to ensure gender equity in a participation or learning system?
• What pedagogy should be implemented to make future and current hydrologists aware of the importance of the consideration of gender in the implementation of methodologies / solutions?
• What learning outcomes to achieve, or improve, by integrating the gender issue in hydrology training?
• How can gender-sensitive pricing improve learning processes? acquire general engineering and research skills? acquire transdisciplinary skills?
Thus, contributions could be focused on social learning, the participatory process, transdisciplinarity and their dimension relating to gender inclusion. They could also be more focused on formal education with a particular focus on gender inclusion.
