9th International Symposium on Wetland Pollution and Control (WETPOL)

13-17 Sep 21

During WETPOL, one of the most important international conferences on constructed wetlands and nature – based solutions, alchemia-nova will present part of the work done in HOUSEFUL

BOKU University of Vienna organises the “9th International Symposium On Wetland Pollution and Control” that brings together wetland scientists, engineers and practitioners working on wetland ecosystem services, including water quality improvement, climate regulation and flood control.

The scope of this conference is to create a framework for wetland scientists and practitioners to exchange knowledge and advance the overall understanding of these complex ecosystems.

As part of this conference, alchemia-nova, one of HOUSEFUL partners, will curate both a workshop and a session.

The workshop “Setting full sail towards future resilient cities: Strategies to apply NBS to close water and nutrient cycles within the green-blue-grey infrastructure”, that starts with a briefing and debate about the potential of closing urban water and nutrient cycles through the application of nature-based solutions (NBS), aims to develop an action-plan for future endeavours, including recommendations on potential project proposals, research activities, policy, funding schemes, and how to strengthen collaboration with stakeholders, all in order to get our cities shipshape and resilient for future challenges.

The session “Nature based solutions as the missing link to close water and nutrient cycles in cities”, on the other hand, provides a platform for investigators and practitioners to present recent research and projects on systemic analysis, resource management strategies and specific technologies which apply nature-based solutions (NBS) in cities and urban environments to close water and nutrient cycles or apply systemic or nexus thinking.
