Young Water Professionals
  • AWA's Young Water Professionals (YWP) network exists to engage, represent, service and inspire young or new water sector professionals. There is no hard and fast definition of a YWP but as a guide our activities may be most relevant to those under the age of approximately 35 years, those with up to approximately ten years water sector experience across all disciplines (regardless of credentials).

    We are a pretty active network and get involved in a wide range of areas within the water industry!  If you or a colleague would like to keep updated on our events, then join us!   To join this network you must be an AWA member.
