Building Leaders & Making Impact – 8th International Young Water Professionals Conference
The global event for Young Water Professionals.
The International Young Water Professionals Conference brings together 450 water, environment and related young professionals from across the globe and showcases how the young water professionals are making impact across the sector as well as offering capacity development and training sessions to further skill our future water leaders to tackle the demands from the water sector.
The conference theme is Building Leaders & Making Impact. You will be challenged to demonstrate the impact of your work, whilst workshops and learning sessions will take place during the conference in order to build our capacity as the next generation of water leaders. Rather than the conventional sub-theme session format where presentations are restricted to a single discipline, the IYWPC encourages multidisciplinary sharing and learning with sessions that make impact in some “big topics” in the water sector and beyond.
The International Young Water Professionals Conference
Following seven successful International Young Water Professional Conferences (IYWPC) in the UK, Netherlands, Singapore, USA, Australia, Hungary, Taiwan, the International Water Association (IWA) together with Water Institute of Southern Africa (WISA) and the South African Young Water Professionals (YWP-ZA) will organise the 8th edition of the International Young Water Professional Conference on 10–13 December 2017 in Cape Town, South Africa. Through the offering of technical paper sessions, topical workshops, soft skill learning sessions, networking opportunities and a career fair, the IYWPC will be the “Must Attend” event for young water professionals (YWPs), especially for those wishing to develop their career and progress further into the water sector.
