Save the Date: BLUE PLANET Berlin Water Dialogues | 8 November 2023 | 12:00 – 18:00 | Online | in English
Berlin, 28.06.2023 – Titled “Closing the Loop – Circular Water Economy”, the BLUE PLANET Berlin Water Dialogues will focus on the important topic of closed water cycles on 8 November 2023. The consequences of global climate change and the increasing scarcity of resources call for new and holistic ways of managing water. Following the discussion of artificial intelligence at last year’s conference, this edition of the online format will emphasize another future topic for the industry. The BLUE PLANET Berlin Water Dialogues are supported by the Export Initiative for Environmental Protection − GreenTech “Made in Germany” of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV), and the Berlin Senate Department for Economic Affairs, Energy and Public Enterprises.
The BLUE PLANET Berlin Water Dialogues are a well-established and growing global networking platform, which unites international stakeholders from research, business, and politics in the field of innovative water management. The digital event format provides a forum to discuss solutions for future-oriented and sustainable water resource management with regards to the global challenges posed by climate change, demographic trends / population growth and urbanisation. In 2021 and 2022, up to 700 participants from over 70 countries took part in the event.
This year, the advisory board of the BLUE PLANET Berlin Water Dialogues, responsible for setting the conference’s thematic focus, gains support from Dr. Bettina Rechenberg, Head of Department III “Sustainable Products and Production, Circular Economy” at the Federal Environment Agency (Umweltbundesamt, UBA) and Dr. Lisa Broß, Group Leader of “Research & Business Development” at the Kompetenzzentrum Wasser Berlin gGmbH and designated Managing Director of the DWA Deutsche Vereinigung für Wasserwirtschaft, Abwasser und Abfall e. V. (German Association for Water, Wastewater and Waste) as well as Boris Greifeneder, Managing Director of German Water Partnership e.V.
The 2023 edition, to be held on November 8th, offers diverse insights into innovative, national, and international application examples and technologies. During panel discussions and break-out sessions, topics ranging from nutrient recovery in municipal wastewater treatment plants and resource recovery in the industrial sector to energy management in the water sector, climate-neutral wastewater treatment plants and phosphorus recovery will provide ample opportunity to engage in an in-depth conversation. In addition, there will be a practice-oriented exchange based on the presentation of best-practice examples from the industry.
This digital event format is aimed at an international audience, will be held in English and is free of charge for all participants. Further information regarding the programme and registration will follow shortly at www.blueplanetberlin.de and via LinkedIn and Twitter.
