Water is one of the most important ecosystem services that the mountains provide to the town. How can water be kept in the cycle of our towns? How can low-threshold, blue infrastructure be built? What does a meaningful future of alpine water and thirsty metropolises around the Alps look like?
Stefan Hasler from the Swiss Wastewater Association will talk about these questions as well as possible solutions and tangible measures at his lecture on Friday, 13 October at 2 pm in the AlpenStadtMuseum in Sonthofen/D. He will illustrate the “sponge city” concept in Basel/CH. With this principle, rainwater can be stored more intensively in the soil like in a sponge and evaporate via urban greenery.
After the lecture, young people from various Alpine towns will present their ideas for the careful use of water and discuss them in greater depth in a subsequent discussion.
