After a restful summer, we are all back in the office and back in action. During this autumn, water will be an important topic for our Commission through many project activities, meetings and conferences where we will be represented as well as Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and how we are promoting and implementing them on the local municipal level. Urban planning and brownfield related issues are also in our agenda for this autumn.
