7th YWPDK Conference


We are looking forward to see you at the…

7th Young Water Professionals Denmark’s Annual Conference

This year’s conference will take place the 22nd and 23rd of April. The conference will take place in Copenahgen. We have a maximum participant number of 49 members, so make sure to register as quickly as possible to secure a spot. Thursday will be hosted by BIOFOS at Lynetten, while Friday will be hosted by Danish Industry at their headquarters in the center of Copenhagen, while the second venue is still to be confirmed.

The Covid-19 pandemic has put all networking activities under pressure and we will monitor the situation closely and respond accordingly. We have placed the conference at the end of April because we believe it realistic to host the conference this far into the vaccination program and close to summer. 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 networking activities. We will focus on technical knowledge as well as soft skills. We will furthermore aim to bring an international and political aspect of the water sector to you. You’ll have many of opportunities to get inspiration from other YWPs, but also from our inspirational speakers and guests. There will also be plenty of time to network and meet your fellow young water professionals during the conference, especially during the social dinner on Thursday evening.

You can find more information on how to submit an sbatract for the conference here – the deadline is 21st of February.

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 info package send out prior to the conference.


The conference will be hosted by two hosts. Thefirst day is hosted by BIOFOS at their facilities on Lynetten. The adress is Refshalevej 250, 1432, Copenhagen.
