IEC Young Professionals newsletter

The IEC YP newsletter has been developed to inspire IEC Young Professionals to increase their involvement in IEC activities. You will find stories on how some of the IEC YPs were able to get more involved in IEC work after the IEC YP workshops. Articles on successful national IEC YP programmes are also illustrated with other relevant information that helps IEC YPs to be more engaged in IEC work.


If you also have a story to share, please contact Robert McLaren.
