Are you a Young Professional? Want to learn about H2O? Come to the Netherlands!
Water experts are needed. Economic development in large parts of the world leads to an increase in the demand for clean water. Furthermore, a large part of the worlds’ population lives in coastal cities that are prone to flooding. And climate change creates new challenges we have not dealt with before. In the near future, demand for water expertise will exceed the current supply of water experts. In the Netherlands we have several educational programmes and institutions focused on water. Have a look at the opportunities!
Young Expert Programmes (YEP)
Dutch companies, knowledge institutions and social organisations that are involved in the policy for, and implementation of, development cooperation activities outside the Netherlands can submit a project proposal for the deployment of a Young Expert. The period of deployment is a minimum of 1 year and a maximum of 2 years. During their programme the Young Experts receive intensive training and coaching. Local Young Experts are recruited by the organisation submitting the application. Potential Local Young Experts should therefore approach Dutch organisations to employ you. A list of Dutch organisations is available at the Dutch embassy in your country.
