IWA YWP's Collaboration with the Water Sector
IWA also collaborates with other organisations in the water sector to empower the next generation...
Representing about a quarter of the Association's individual members —from nearly 100 different countries—, the Young Water Professionals' segment is the fastest growing segment with about 30% increase over the last decade.
Its related activities —such as conferences, workshops and publications— are also growing. Furthermore, as IWA increases its social media footprint, YWPs' role in generating knowledge, networking and influencing the sector will change the dynamics of the Association across the globe.
Up until today, the segment reaches about 1500 young professionals, enabling the IWA YWP programme of activities to connect a varied audience that includes corporates, their clients and our future water leaders. Throughout a series of dedicated activities, IWA aims to empower the next generation of water leaders and supporting the sector in attracting young professionals from wide-ranging disciplines, policy makers, scholars and practitioners, assisting them to fulfil their potential to become global leaders.
Recognising those whom significantly contribute to the next generation of Water Leaders
IWA together with my-water-career.com —the career website of IWA Publishing— recognises companies in the water sector that are making significant contributions to the professional development of young employees. Every two years, The Professional Development Award is granted during the World Water Congress to 'that distinctive institution'.
