EJWP Welcomes Phoebe Koundouri as Programme Ambassador
Prof. Phoebe Koundouri is the new EJWP Programme Ambassador. The European Junior Water Programme (EJWP) is the flagship programme and official trade name of H20-people. Registred in 2015, H20-people became active in the public sphere with EJWP, which is its largest initiative in action to date. The H2O-people mission is to enable personal & professional growth through unique programmes aimed at connection of talent to realize potential through all career phases.
Prof. Koundouri delivered a masterclass on the Nexus of climate change and challenges in technological innovation, during the EJWP Training Week in October.
“A huge socio-economic transformation is needed for the transition to a sustainable development pathway. The mobilizer of the transition is the unprecedent pace of technological advancement that makes green and digital technologies cost efficient for massive deployment. However, without the up-skilling and re-skilling of the labor force, the technology cannot be adopted. EJWP is crucial because its participants are focusing on water industry-related knowledge transfer and personal/professional skills development in international teams. I’m honored to be an EJWP Ambassador.”
