The aim of this survey is to identify potential topics which shall be discussed in the preparatory meeting taking place on Wednesday 16.11.2016 in Bern from 14:15 to 16:15. The objectives of the meeting is to define clear outlines of the potential Swiss Water Partnership thematic events. Therefore we would be glad if you could indicate us whether you intend to participate at next year's edition of the Stockholm World Water Week (SWWW) and to propose topics you would like to discuss in a potential thematic event (even if you should not be able to participate in the preparatory meeting).
The theme for the conference in 2017 will be "Water & Waste - Reduce and Reuse". Although the proposed themes for thematic seminars should be linked with this topic, the selection committee of the SWWW usually also accepts proposals on other burning topics of the water sector.
The annual Stockholm World Water Week is a key international water event which attracts over 3'000 key decision makers in the international water sector. The SWP coordinates the submission of proposals and the execution of thematic events (seminars and workshops). Furthermore the SWP develops and implements a Swiss booth together with its members.
The thematic events attract international water decision makers and provide an opportunity to present, collect critical feedback and network with international experts.
