The overall purpose of YWPDK is to provide a free of charge and non-profit networking platform for young and new water professionals in the Danish water sector.

We focus on professional networking, knowledge sharing, skills development, exploring new trends and international collaboration.

YWP Denmark is a group of students and professionals ranging from social, natural, and engineering, policy makers, scholars, practitioners, Danish, and internationals.

We are embedded and an active part of the water sector through partnerships and collaboration with various Danish stakeholders. We are also an official part of the International Water Association.
