Waste management and circular economy

Water - 28.05.2021

Joint our Green Week event on ensuring clean and circular water
Clean and sustainable water is essential to people’s health and well-being. Water management is taking on new importance with the European Union’s ambitions to move towards zero pollution and eliminate waste with the creation of a circular economy.

Join us to discuss this important issue during EU Green Week at our official partner event, “Clean and Circular Water: Fostering Healthier Cities and Regions”. The online session will take place 7 June 14:00 – 15:30 (CET). Register here.

Water management has risen to the top of the European agenda and now needs reformed and coherent legislative framework. New challenges demand that we reform water management: the recurrence of flooding disasters overwhelming cities, water pollution by micropollutants and the need for more sustainable water management process.

Local governments’ expertise and involvement is sorely needed to upgrade our European system and move with the general trend toward more circularity. Municipalities and regions are at the heart of efforts to protect both water quality and citizens’ health with innovative nature-based solutions.

The following speakers will join us for a discussion moderated by Tamsin Rose:
  • Oriana Romano (keynote speaker), Head of Unit, Water Governance and Circular Economy, OECD
  • Marieke Schouten, Alderman of the municipality of Nieuwegein and member of the Committee of the Regions
  • Filippe Araujo, Vice-Mayor of the city of Porto and Chair of the Environment Forum of Eurocities
  • Carla Chiaretti, Head of Policy, EurEAU
  • Nele-Frederike Rosenstock, Directorate-General for Environment (DG ENV), European Commission
  • Sari Rautio, Member of the Hämeenlinna City Council and of the European Committee of Regions and CEMR Spokesperson on Environment
