NBS for water treatment - Connecting experiences explored in the NICE Project

NICE NBS for water treatment

There is great potential in capturing and reusing water in our cities, towns and regions and greater potential in achieving this together. The H2020-funded NICE Project focuses on nature-based solutions to mitigate pollution and contribute to water reuse for circular urban water cycle, based on capturing, retaining and treating water. Within this framework, 11 locations, known as Urban Real Lab‘s are working towards these aims through research and participatory processes. The 11 URLs come from around the globe. Some are, for example, using enhanced bioaugmentation. In all, 14 pioneering partners in total are working together to develop and test these innovative solutions, while defining guidelines, business models, identifying opportunities in current regulatory frameworks, and raising awareness for co-creation.

During this webinar, Daiane Trevisan (CETIM) will tell us more about the project goals and activities, followed by Marina Gentle (LISODE), who will present the main actions these organisations carry out to connect and explore with stakeholders on how to develop NICE nature-based solutions. As a case study, the city of Gdánsk, represented by Magdalena Gajewska, will showcase their experience in their own context.

Speakers include:

Carme Machí Castañer, Officer Sustainable Resources Climate and Resilience, ICLEI Europe, Germany

Daiane Trevisan, Researcher of the R&D Eco Bio Technologies Department, CETIM, Spain

Marina Gentle, Consultant – Project Officer, LISODE, France

Magdalena Gajewska, Professor, Gdańsk University of Technology Faculty of Civil And Environmental Engineering, Poland
