Do you know a project in Europe that has developed an innovative solution to problems in the field of flooding and flood prevention? Nominate it for the POWER Best Practice Award for innovative water sustainability solutions. If your nomination is among the best voted ones, you can win the DROP water game!
There are many cities in Europe that, due to their geographical location, have been facing increased flood risk for decades and even centuries. Today, with the effects of climate change becoming ever more evident, many other places all over the world are at risk of extreme weather events and heavy rainfalls. Leicester, for instance, is particularly vulnerable to heavy and prolonged periods of rain leading to flooding. This is why the Leicester City Council in collaboration with the POWER project is searching for inspirations from other places in Europe that have successfully implemented projects in the field of flood prevention and awareness building.
If you know of a successfully implemented project in the field of flood prevention and awareness building, share more about it in the comments below. This way you will nominate it for the POWER Best Practice Award for innovative water sustainability solutions. Nominating a project is simple:
Just go to the comment section below and post a very brief description (2-3 sentances) of the project you are nominating, ideally with a link to its website where more information could be found. You don't need to be part of the project to nominate it for the award. The nominated project can be from any European city. Don't forget that to nominate, you need to be registered to the platform.
Deadline for nominating a project is September 1st, 2019.
By nominating a project for the POWER Best Practice Award, you are contributing to the establishment of a Europe-wide database of water sustainability practices. After the end of the nomination phase, the POWER jury of innovation, water and sustainability experts will select the top three nominated projects that will win the POWER Best Practice Award. The three award winners will have the chance to present their projects in front of a high-level international audience of water experts and municipal representatives at the POWER conference in Brussels between October 9-10, 2019.
If your nomination makes it among the 10 most popular ones, you will get one of the 10 interactive DROP! water games that help you learn about water sustainability in a funny, engaging and visually appealing way.
For the nomination to become popular, please share the link to your nomination comment in your personal network and ask your friends to like it and reply to it. Keep it mind that this will also help the project you are nominating - the POWER jury will take into account the ammount of support (comments and likes) that a nomination gained.
The POWER Best Practice Award for innovative water sustainability solutions distinguishes smart solutions to water-related issues in the fields of extreme weather events and sustainable water consumption, conservation & reuse. The award is part of the EU Horizon 2020 project POWER. Projects from different European cities that tackle one of these four water-related topics can be nominated for the award on the POWER platforms of the cities Leicester, Milton Keynes, Sabadell and Jerusalem until September 1st, 2019.
