Who we are
The Young Professionals (YPs) from the DKKV are young professionals in the field of disaster risk management. Within the DKKV network, we have the opportunity to establish contacts with experts from various fields and networks and with with each other. In joint projects, such as writing articles for the newsletter or organising a webinar, we use our different expertise to look at topics from different angles. At regular online get-togethers, we take the opportunity to exchange ideas on a professional as well as personal level.
Interested? Then join us at one of our next meetings! Just send an email to email@example.com.
Membership as a Young Professional is limited to five years after your last subject-related degree – unless you are currently undergoing further subject-related training or studies.
