    EJWP leverages the talent and dedication of junior water professionals over a total programme time of 8 weeks.  Participants typically spend one day per week on the programme throughout the course. During the time between the quarterly training weeks hosted by their different organisations, participants work on a project for 8 days.

    EJWP’s specialists provide training on competences including:

    • Personal & communication development
    • Co-creation strategies and evaluation
    • Project and self management
    • Leadership and pro-active strategies
    • Future century skills for sustainability

    Participants build their networks and working relationships with each other, while co-creating solutions in projects with their teammate colleagues from around Europe. And every three months, all participants come together for a training week facilitated by one of our participating organisations (meeting conditions subject to the local Covid-19 safety guidelines).

    EJWP’s integrated programme:

    Through an integrated 2-year, part-time programme, EJWP enables development of key skills: network building, communication & diversity, technical advancements and more – to empower water-sector careers and their social contributions. And EJWP development activities take place along with participants’ continued work in their current positions.

    EJWP’s 3 pillars:

    • Knowledge creation and transfer:
      Masterclasses on European policies, water technology and innovations, and primary water challenges – including local water projects of participating organisations.
    • European network opportunities through EJWP community building:
      Integration in Water Europe, EJWP Ambassadors, and event participation
