Apply to exchange valuable knowledge for a Sustainable Urban Water Cycle

Does your city work with circular water initiatives, or is involved in ongoing initiatives to integrate nature-based solutions (NbS)? If so, ICLEI Europe encourages you to apply to become part of the NICE Cities Panel and improve your capacities for promoting Sustainable Urban Water Cycle. The panel is searching for around 10 cities to join!

The NICE Cities Panel (NCP) places emphasis on forming a vibrant community of practice. The community will be interested in widening the knowledge availability of NBS for water treatment and reuse in urban landscapes, aiming to mitigate water pollution and runoff, while enhancing water reuse through urban landscapes.

ICLEI Europe is coordinating the panel, which will gather 11 involved cities: Pereira (Colombia), Turin (Italy), Talavera, Algeciras, Madrid, Benalmádena and Vigo (Spain), Lyon (France), Cairo (Egypt), Aarhus (Denmark) and Gdansk (Poland), and 7 fellow cities: Ostrava (Czech Republic), Vienna (Austria), Copenhagen(Denmark), Tirana (Albania), Belgrade (Serbia), Quito (Ecuador) and Kunming(China) to exchange on their experiences with other cities on topics related to the analysis, the testing, the implementation, and the monitoring of nature-based solutions to mitigate water pollution and runoff to ensure a circular urban water system. 

Joining the panel provides invaluable opportunities; involved cities will connect and exchange knowledge for a Sustainable Urban Water Cycle on a wide range of NBS (e.g. rain gardens, bioswales, subsurface flow wetlands, green roofs or green walls).  

Applying is simple! Just fill out this survey to state your cities’ interest by 28 March
