At the forefront of the design, development and implementation of current change processes,
IWA’s activities for Young Water Professionals aim to empower the next generation of water leaders.
Young Water Professionals
It is clear that the water sector should invest in recruitment, management and development of young staff, as well as put them at the forefront of design, development and implementation of current change processes. It is not a concern of the future, it is happening now!
IWA invests in Young Water Professionals, by empowering them within the association and the water sector. Young members will be able to build their career in this network, by connecting and contributing (work with peers internationally) to the water sector, and through this build their network, develop professionally, and gain profile.
In a world increasingly needing to bridge divides and break out of silos, the IWA is a cohesive network of water sector professionals who are creating impact to address global water challenges.

How to Get Involved?
To take part in this global network and to contribute to shaping our water-wise future, we encourage you to join our YWP Community and our Country Chapters. Check below how to get involved.
Meet the IWA YWP Country Chapters
The chapters are a voluntary network of YWPs with a minimum of 3 IWA members in its steering committee, usually within a country, although sometimes at the regional level. They are set up as a way to enable regional, national and local activities. These activities help with the engagement and inclusion of a more diverse network of YWPs from various organisations within the water sector.
Meet the IWA YWP Steering Committee
The representative body of young members (35 and below) that provides advice to the association about the appropriate ways to serve young professionals needs, support their empowerment and engage and contribute them in IWA’s current activities at national and international level.
