Description

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.
