NORDIWA – Nordic Waste Water Conference
NORDIWA – Nordic Waste Water Conference will take place in Helsinki, Finland, on 23–25 September 2019. NORDIWA is a leading Nordic event for water professionals – experts and practitioners, managers and operators: utility staff, city planners, researchers, engineers, advisors and others with an interest in wastewater management and climate change adaptation in the Nordic region. Special focus in 2019 is on wastewater management in the Baltic Sea Region.
With such theme in focus, one of the projects of UBC Sustainable Cities Commission, BSR WATER – Platform on Integrated Water Cooperation is taking part in the conference programme. Join BSR WATER for the workshop "Protection and co-operation around the Baltic Sea" on 24 September (14.00 – 15.20).
The workshop will address the major threat to the Baltic Sea – pollution and eutrophication, – and solving this challenge through improving cooperation and sharing knowledge across the region. Participants on the workshop will discuss topical challenges in the region, the ways of multilevel cooperation and role of different actors. The results of this workshop will aid to preparing the IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition 2020 to identify key lessons learned to take forward to Copenhagen.
The Conference Programme can be found on the NORDIWA website. It includes presentations, workshops, technical visits and social events including the conference dinner and Helsinki City reception.
