The European Junior Water Programme aims to build a community of talented young water management professionals who share a deep commitment to addressing today’s and future water and climate change issues in Europe. It is designed to provide participants with the knowledge, the skills, the tools and the appropriate co-creation and cooperation network to find new solutions and share knowledge for the purpose of creating and maintaining a sustainable and safe water management system in Europe.
The personal development programme is especially made for young people who already have a few years of working and training experience and who work in a context that is complex. Complex means that there are no simple answers. That you have to deal with multiple stakeholders, that the outcomes of decisions are unsure and influenced by many different aspects. How do you manage such a situation? How do you make decisions? How do you work together?
In this programme we’ll be dealing with all such issues. Both by working together in projects and by trying out new strategies and skills. You will get te know eachother, yourself, the European Water world and the cultural (dis)similarities much better.
