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 development of Blue Green 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.
