Connect. Learn. Share. Do.


Young Water Professionals Denmark (YWPDK) is a member-driven network for young professionals within the Danish water sector. Established in 2014 and growing ever since, YWPDK provides a platform for our members to connect, learn, share and do, as well as it strategically seeks to contribute a young voice to the debate, discourse and political agenda within and beyond the water sector. Our strategical focus areas are:

  • Knowledge sharing

  • Mentoring


We are currently around 500 young water professionals across Denmark. YWPDK is a remarkable group of master students, graduates and young professionals ranging from social-, natural-, and engineering sciences, policy makers, scholars and practitioners, Danish and Internationals. We are as diverse as the manifold aspects and challenges of the water sector.
