The YP Imbizo provides a unique and dynamic platform for built environment and engineering young professionals (YPs) in the public and private sectors to discuss pertinent issues relating to all aspects of delivery and maintenance of infrastructure and engineering projects.

It also seeks to establish and maintain structures for YPs to become role-models for school learners as well as providing coaching and mentoring opportunities for YPs from senior infrastructure professionals.

YP Imbizo Objectives

The conference offers several benefits to Young Professionals through the following objectives:

  • Empower Young Professionals with best leadership-experience embracing objectivity, community participation/activisms, professionalism, and promotion of engineering principles.
  • Establish and maintain organisational structures for YPs to act as role models for school learners and for senior infrastructure/engineering to mentor YPs.
  • Provide solutions to skills development and retention by public sector and private sector. Without engineering skills there will be no provision for water, housing, and road services but absolute poverty, inequality and unemployment will prevail.
  • #SustainingTheFutureOfEngineering
