IWA Young Water Professionals Programme

It is clear that the water sector should invest in recruitment, management and development of young staff, as well as put them at the forefront of design, development and implementation of current change processes. It is not a concern of the future, it is happening now!

IWA invests in Young Water Professionals, by empowering them within the association and the water sector. Young members will be able to build their career in this network, by connecting and contributing (work with peers internationally) to the water sector, and through this build their network, develop professionally, and gain profile.

If you are under 35 years of age, and active in the Water sector, we want to hear from you!

Dr. Lisa Jones our Young Water Professional Champion, with the support of Ray Earle, IWA Chair, is delighted to launch the new Dublin Chapter of the Young Water professionals and  to unveil our YWP programme for our Dublin Conference.

We look forward to seeing you in Dublin – you are the future!
