    The European Junior Water Programme (EJWP) is the flagship programme and official trade name of H20-people. Registred in 2015, H20-people became active in the public sphere with EJWP, which is its largest initiative in action to date. The H2O-people mission is to enable personal & professional growth through unique programmes aimed at connection of talent to realize potential through all career phases.

    We support the engagement of young professionals and employees to be fulfilled in their roles in creating a new water world together. To do this, we guide, train and challenge our clients with new ideas going out of comfort zones to work on new projects, and enlarge networks to learn how they can collaborate with new people and concepts. This positive emphasis can contribute to talent retention in organisations and within the water sector.

    H20-people is also a collaboration partner designing tailor-made strategies for participation and funding within EU and other collaboration projects. We focus on the human capital element in programs – thus empowering people to develop their potential for generating solutions for tomorrow’s challenges. H20 people is available to enter into small–medium project partnerships to facilitate larger trainings like summer school instruction on water-related topics. Our challenging programs support ambitions of managing a future of natural and technical transformations in the water sector.

    Contact us if your organisation will benefit from tools to create tangible results through training or project partnerships with our dynamic community of human-centric professionals.

    Our philosophy

    Empowering people not only for technical solutions, but also reinforcing human elements of partnerships for social innovation in the water and environmental sector.

    Our programme participants develop a broader scope of professional and personal opportunities, leading to positive impacts in their engagement with organisations that are committed to a better living environment. H20-People structures interaction with participants to create a space for further inspiring exchanges among trainers and the program designers. We apply personalised approaches and follow-up in a commitment to target results. An eye for synergies is developed through pairing the right people with the right expertise to broaden the scope of development.

    We believe in operational partnerships with our participants, and from this connectivity comes a more real potential for participants to contribute to their communities. Our expertise centers on programs that highlight links between the content of participants’ work within the physical environment, to identify optimum paths for projects and personal development.

      Merel Mostert from the Netherlands: I work as a Senior Policy Advisor in the Wastewater sector for Delfland Water Authority in the Netherlands. This is one of the 21 water authorities in the country. A water authority takes care of water levels, for example with pumping stations, wastewater purification, managing dikes and clear water. It’s clear to me that access to water resources should be equal in each country: a situation in which everyone is responsible for the quantity and quality of available water. We would all take care of our role in resource management, so that water is available to everyone. Water should be a human right. [caption id="attachment_2969" align="alignright" width="2…

I also use GIS software for different needs and design different types of water structures.  I actually joined EJWP as a PhD student and am still working on my PhD thesis! My work often requires multitasking with water supply systems, waste water treatment plants, river engineering, water power use, and electricity …

      Benjamin Hermans from Belgium: De Watergroep decided to sponsor a second employee participant in EJWP. This was me, in EJWP2. My current role at De Watergroep is as a process engineer.

On Training EJWP is a program with a lot of opportunities. I was motivated to join to get to know the water sector as a whole. EJWP is a great opportunity …

      EJWP is connecting in Italy, as some southern parts of Europe hold potential but still lack a number of opportunities for young engagement in the development of sector skills. Planning is underway with Maria Cristina Pasi to hold an EJWP training week in Lombardy, Italy, in January 2023 to integrate with organizations and actors in the region, including planning for an upcoming Open Innovation Platform to further support new initiatives. The Open Innovation is an interactive digital platform of the Lombardy Region focused on research and innovation topics of the industrial and research & technology organizations landscape, covering all the traditional and most innovative sectors.
