We are looking forward to see you at the…

6th Young Water Professionals Denmark’s annual conference.

This year’s conference will take place the 5th and 6th of March and it will be hosted by Vandcenter Syd in Odense. We hope you will enjoy the program we have prepared for you! 

The two-day program is filled with events that contain both technical and social activities. This year we’re very much focused on the “Future of Water” and we hope you’ll have many of opportunities to get inspiration from other YWPs, but also from our very especial guests.

If you are a student or unemployed you can attend the conference at a reduced fee of 300 DKK. This year YWPDK sponsors the student /unemployed registration fee for the first 40 tickets to 150 DKK.

General Assembly

As always, we will have the general assembly in combination with the national conference. The general assembly is where the members get to influence YWPDK. This is where you can suggest areas for YWPDK to focus on and what activities to plan in order to better meet the wishes of the YWPDK member base. During the general assembly there will be the chance to run for a position on YWPDK and vote for candidates. The board will present the accounts for the past year and put forward the budget for the members to accept or suggest alterations too. You can read more about the general assembly and how to run for the board or as regional representative in the invitation.
