National initiatives

We would like to connect to all young hydrologists in the world and think this may be best facilitated through active YHS members in every country. This might be you?!

Ideally, each country has a small group of active members that form the board of a YHS National Branch. They can organize events for their peers and form the link between a country’s national hydrological organization(s) and the global young hydrologists community.

More than ideal would be if one of these board members can actively represent the interests of young hydrologists at the national hydrological organizations and is the responsible link between a country’s hydrological community and YHS. They are called YHS Country Representatives.

This is how we envision the YHS connecting to you and your peers. Please have a look at some of the National Branches listed below to learn about what they are doing.

You are interested? Sure you are! The National Branches are surely interested in your help! There is no National Branch yet? You can contact the Country Representative of your country and indicate you want to help starting up a branch! There is no Country Representative of your country yet? Consider yourself a suitable candidate and contact one of the YHS board members with your ideas!
