At this year’s NORDIWA – Nordic wastewater conference, YWPDK held a workshop for all Nordic Young Water Professionals. The workshop was held in cooperation with VA-Yngre from Sweden and Norway, and YWPs from Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland participated. The workshop started with a presentation of the existing national chapters in order to identify similarities and differences in how the networks operate and what the networks offers the members. The presentations were followed by a session focusing on Nordic knowledge sharing and networking. What are the strengths and limitations of YWPDK and VA-Yngre? What does YWPs want from their network? How should Nordic networking be facilitated? Why should we network across the Nordic borders?
