Connected, insightful water leadership in Europe is increasingly vital in adapting to climate impacts, new circular economies, digitalisation and a more diverse labour market. We know that water and climate change impacts do not recognise political boundaries.
Young water professionals are key to future adaptation – and we support their development! Are you ready to invest in the collaborative strength of future water resources? See how our tailored programme can help junior water-sector personnel build key skills to accompany technical expertise in water management for resilient cities, agriculture and industry.
EJWP 3 pillars of development:
- Knowledge creation and transfer: masterclasses on European policies, water technology and innovations, and primary water challenges — including local water projects of participating organizations.
- European network opportunities through EJWP community building: integration in Water Europe, EJWP Ambassadors, and event participation.
- Personal and professional skills development in international teams: emphasis on cultural awareness and diversity in project exercises.
Surf the Waves of New Opportunities! The European Junior Water Programme (EJWP) connects young European water management professionals (2 – 8 years of experience / <35 years-old) with skills to manage emerging water and climate challenges. Our participants build capacities to co-create and implement projects for resilient water management.

And EJWP development activities take place along with participants’ continued work in their current positions.
