For the next couple of months, the EU SME Centre is organising a new webinar series in collaboration with the China Europe Water Platform with a focus on Urban Water. 
 
The series aim to promoting exchanges between European and Chinese players in the water market. Through this collaboration, the EU SME Centre will also participate in this year’s Aquatech China Trade Show which will take place in the beginning of June in Shanghai. The EU SME Centre and the co-organisers are therefore happy to invite you to participate in the first webinar, which will focus on Water management in the development of Blue Green Cities.
 
The webinar, organised by the EU SME Centre and China Europe Water Platform (CEWP) with the support of our implementing partner, China-Italy Chamber of Commerce (CICC), will explore the perspectives of Sponge City approach to constitute a key element of urban development, present concrete cases and discuss cross-sector elements including other urban functionalities, participatory approaches and relation to the concept of Smart Cities.
 
The concept of Sponge Cities in China aims at managing excessive amounts of surface water, often causing severe and costly floods, by turning these water resources into urban development assets as part of an overall blue-green profile of the Future City. The webinar will explore the perspectives of Sponge City approach to constitute a key element of urban development, present concrete cases, discuss cross-sector elements including other urban functionalities, participatory approaches and relation to the concept of Smart Cities. Technology cases will focus on nature-based solutions in an urban setting and water retention.
