We are proud to host IWA Congress and Exhibition with the proposed topic: “Water for smart liveable cities”. This topic addresses the challenges of the future and we will demonstrate smart water technology, system solutions, governance and policy in order to secure resilience in future towns and cities of the world.
Denmark has a long history of water and a remarkable tradition for sustainable solutions. Copenhagen is a liveable, blue and green city introducing smart integrated water solutions. In Denmark we drink groundwater directly from the tap, and thanks to efficient waste water treatment you can swim in our harbour, and our beaches are clean. New climate resilient neighbourhoods are being planned and built. Congress delegates will have plenty of opportunities to explore this living water laboratory.
You can see the Themes & Topics in Call for Content. It's no longer possible to submit abstracts or workshop-proposals. The review process is going on and the Programme Committee will shape a programme in 19-20 tracks. Denmark has four members in the Programme Committee.
