(Early career) hydrologists work hard to gain a better understanding of the water cycle and bring water sciences to the next level. Sometimes we tend to forget that communicating our science to our peers and the public requires a strong and well-functioning community, steered by scientific organizations. Scientific organizations that are often criticized for its poor mix of gender and age. However, as our organizations rely on volunteers, you can actually do something yourself! Attend our presentation in the Water Sciences Pop-Ups session, where we will try to show that everyone can support our community, take initiative and get involved!
