Young Professionals Coastal Community
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 Programme 2018
Our initiative entails the establishment of an educational programme based on the Climate of Coastal Cooperation (CCC) book in close cooperation with young professionals, experts and academia. The educational programme 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 programme also includes a lecture- and fieldwork-weekend on the Dutch Waddensea Isle of Ameland and the opportunity to present research during the YPCC workshop at the international Conference LITTORAL.
Our programme 2018 provides:
- An e-communication platform,
- an international core group of experts performing as guest-lecturers (YPCC Mentor group),
- and the continuation of EU supported ICZM (Integrated Coastal Zone Management) fieldwork.
