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.
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. 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 June 15, 2019.
By nominating a project for the POWER Best Practice Award, you are not only helping the city of Leicester prepare better for flooding, but are also contributing to the establishment of a Europe-wide database of water sustainability practices. After your nomination is submitted, the POWER jury will select the top three projects that will have the chance to present their approach 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.
The POWER Best Practice Award for innovative water sustainability solutions distinguishes smart solutions to water-related issues in the fields of extreme weather events, reduction of water consumption, water reuse and water conservation. 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 June 15, 2019.
