YPCC is an initiative started in 2011 by the Coastal & Marine Union (EUCC) and is aimed towards uniting students, their teachers and directors, and a core group of international senior experts to the exchange of information on coastal processes.
“Aimed at an integrated and sustainable future, we bring together Young Professionals and Experts to share knowledge and gain new perspectives on Coastal and Marine management”
YPCC Program 2024
Our initiative entails the establishment of an educational program based on the Climate of Coastal Cooperation (CCC) book in close cooperation with young professionals, experts and academia. The educational program from Impacts of Global Change to Adaptive Responses and stimulates students and young professionals to engage in a topic related to the impacts of climate change, specifically on ‘their stretch of coast’. Participation in the program also includes a lecture- and fieldwork-weekend in the northern parts of the Netherlands and most importantly the opportunity to present research during the YPCC workshop at the international Conference LITTORAL.
Our program 2024 provides:
- an international core group of experts performing as guest-lecturers (YPCC Mentor group),
- the continuation of EU supported ICZM (Integrated Coastal Zone Management) fieldwork.
