We would like to start second day of conference with session: “How our neighbours do it? – rainwater management in East-Central Europe.
A drop of rain that falls on the ground does not understand the notion of ownership nor borders; similarly the global warming is a global issue. We cannot effectively prevent global warming and introduce adaptive strategies from the perspective of only one stakeholder or country. It is good practice to see how others tackle with the same issues in a better way and to share experience. Having this in mind, our fourth panel is called: How do our neighbours do it? We would like to invite speakers from our neighbouring countries to tell us what rainwater management looks like in their countries, what challenges they meet, where their opportunities lie and what they are proud of. At this moment we want our conference to gain regional reach. We want to set the bar ever higher, we want this event to become a platform for integrating rainwater community not only in Poland but on the whole area of East-Central Europe. This is a very ambitious project and may take several years to complete but we strongly believe that with your help we will initiate it in March 2020 in Gdańsk.
