The Delta Programme Commissioner wants to inspire and involve students, trainees and Young Professionals in the challenges of the Delta Programme. This programme is developed yearly and contains proposals, plans and measures to protect the Netherlands against water, to prepare for the extremes caused by climate change and to make sure there is sufficient fresh water supply. These are current situations, on which we now – and surely in the future – must work together. Exactly because of this, it is important that we involve the young people of today in developing the Delta programme. So that we together with them will be prepared for the future.
The staff Delta Programme Commissioner has asked Roadshow Water and the Wetskills Foundation to reach out to and invite students, trainees and Young Professionals from the water sector to attend the Delta Congress on the 1st of November in Zwolle. Delta Programme Commissioner Wim Kuijken has signed the below invitation.
