Join a kick-off webinar with New York City and City of Copenhagen where they will present the challenges that they are seeking new and innovative ideas, technologies, and approaches for how stormwater can be successfully captured and treated to optimize benefits, reduce risks to public health, and promote co-benefits.
At the webinar learn about the challenges in more detail and what the process and key dates of activities for you to get involved in.
In addition to the kick-off webinar, there will also be hosted three workshops where you will get the opportunity to co-develop your stormwater management solutions.
New York City and the Municipality of Copenhagen are seeking new and innovative ideas, technologies, and approaches for how stormwater can be successfully captured and treated to optimize benefits, reduce risks to public health, and promote co-benefits. Proposed solutions should consider the role water treatment or reuse can play in reducing flows to drainage systems and wastewater treatment facilities, in addition to conserving drinking water.
While the ultimate goal of this challenge is to identify and pilot innovative stormwater treatment and reuse solutions, it is important to consider the opportunities and challenges for implementation. This could also include smart technologies for capturing stormwater. Both cities also hope to gain a better understanding of how to manage the contaminants found in stormwater that can pose issues to public health and the environment, comply with current guidelines, and overcome other barriers to achieve the desired benefits of proposed stormwater treatment and reuse practices.

Kick-off Webinar: Tuesday 23rd February 16:00-17:00 (11:00-12:00 EST).
Workshop 1: Wednesday 17th March 15:00-18:00 (10:00-13:00 EST).
Each of the co-creation workshops is for multi-sector groups to co-develop several potential feasible solution ideas to the city challenge, to be later pitched to a panel of senior city stakeholders. More on the specific focuses will be given shortly.
Workshop 2: Wednesday 14th April 15:00-18:00 (09:00-11:00 EST).
Workshop 3: Wednesday 28th April 15:00-18:00 (09:00-11:00 EST).
The partners will support the city where possible and required, to determine the critical path to potential implementation of a solution.
Pitching Session: May (exact date TBC).
The participating companies will be able to present the co-creation solutions in front of a panel of judges including the city representatives. More to come on the date and time – as well as the venue setup for the final pitching session.
