    The European Junior Water Programme (EJWP) is the flagship programme and official trade name of H20-People. H20-People became active in the public sphere with EJWP in 2019. At the moment H2O-People has two glafship programmes: the European Junior Water Programme (EJWP) and Blue Innovation Track for Advanced Water Leaders, and supports multiple European collaboration projects and innitiatives.


    The H2O-People mission is to support water people, their organizations, their projects, and other collaborations with key specialties for succes. Our services empower water professionals to apply their complete skill sets to establish a water-smart sociert, from knowledge transfer and creation, to communication and leadership – combined to create impact through social innovation.

    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.
