The EJWP Water-Smart Bootcamp kicked off on Monday as part of the Water Innovation Europe 2023 (WIE) Conference with Water Europe. We are using the opportunity of WIE to organize this connected Bootcamp to bring young professionals together from different organization members and countries, also with a variety of expertise.
Connecting the achievements of the Working Group Human Capital, Water Europe, WIE and the UN Water Conference 2023 is not only setting the sector agenda for the next generation, but also making sure to include them in decision-making. To achieve this, it is important to be inviting, empowering and sustainable in methods of engagement for young professionals.
The Bootcamp includes two personal development workshops on personal leadership and inter-cultural communication, masterclasses on Water Europe, and the WIE Conference with different parts of its programme including policy. The core aims of the Bootcamp are:
- Create impact in the sector
- Connect participants and organizations
- Learn with and from each other
- Have fun in collaboration
“To understand better the impact that specific knowledge can have in the real world.”
“We started our jobs in COVID time, when it was still hard to get to know people, and find a place to belong and matter.”
