IAHR Venezuela Young Professionals Network

About us

The YPN Venezuela Young Professionals Network, created in May 2019, is made up of 13 members (11 young professionals and 2 students), all professionals from the hydro-environmental engineering sector.

Some of us currently live in different regions of the world (Argentina, Ecuador, France, Peru, Sweden, and Venezuela). This distinctive feature of our YPN makes it an innovative initiative, adapted to the current challenges, and allows us to stay connected as young Venezuelan professionals living around the world. The creation of the Venezuela YPN is a great way for us to keep up to date with the hydro-environmental sector worldwide and it also provides us with many advantages to continue our professional development.

All the members of the YPN Venezuela are honoured to be part of the IAHR and we hope to contribute to the development of its community of young professionals!
