About the event

Celebrate World Water Day with the NY Blue Tech network. Around the world each year, March 22 marks the day when water-sector stakeholders discuss how to respond to the water challenges we face collectively, and how we locally can deliver on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

At this highly interactive half-day symposium, we are bringing together a diverse group of water-sector stakeholders from New York, and internationally leading companies, to discuss water challenges, both specific to New York, and internationally, with integrated water management being the key common solution.

Topics include:

-Benefits of centralized water system planning
