Stockholm Seminar on Urban Water Issues to Feature Industry Thought Leaders

Experts will focus on critical water needs in a changing urban environment

As part of the upcoming World Water Week in Stockholm, Sweden, seven water and wastewater industry experts will take part in a groundbreaking seminar today, which will examine critical water issues that urban areas are currently facing and the most appropriate ways that industry can respond to those needs. 

The seminar, “Identifying and Solving the Biggest Urban Water Needs,” will focus on the industry’s role in addressing the biggest water needs in urban areas and areas that are becoming more urbanized either due to encroachment from nearby cities or expansion of their own urban boundaries. Insightful presentations and frank discussions will explore the current and future drivers of technological innovation in a changing urban environment. 

Following the presentations, industry leaders will further explore issues raised by the speakers via a moderated discussion with audience interaction. The panel will include the five speakers. 

This year marks the 21st anniversary of the World Water Week. Among the sponsors of Stockholm World Water Week are Black & Veatch, ITT, Siemens and the Water Environment Federation.
