New edition of YEP Effect: no. 6!We are proud to present the 6th edition of YEP Effect!
In this magazine, we reflect on the impact of COVID-19 on YEP Programmes. However, despite this pandemic, YEP batch 20 and YEP Tailor-made batch WaterWorX II kicked off online, and all YEP trainings will continue online as well. Almost all Young Experts are working from home, and the majority of the Dutch Young Experts returned to the Netherlands.
This YEP Effect 6 also features interviews with the first-ever YEP Energy Duo, and all members of the YEP Steering Committee! Furthermore, three new YEP coaches are introduced, all of whom are YEP alumni. And of course, you will also find updates about facts and figures and YEP’s contribution to the SDGs.
