The Political Forum
Using water in an environmentally compatible and innovative way is one of the key geopolitical tasks of the 21st century and simultaneously a significant economic challenge. The BLUE PLANET Berlin Water Dialogues, the political forum for water and waste water management, serve the goal to make their contribution to these responsibilities. With their flexible exchange formats the BLUE PLANET Berlin Water Dialogues provide a policy-oriented platform for the broad international networking to discuss specific options and solutions to the worldwide challenges of global water management. The expertise, qualifications and skills for the sought-after technologies and services are available. BLUE PLANET Berlin Water Dialogues see themselves in the long term as the leading political forum of the water industry in Germany. This is typified by the internationality of the participants from governments, non-governmental organizations, research and science, by the participation of the decision-makers of international water users from industry, energy and agriculture and also from the major cities, and by the benefits associated with Berlin as a location of trade fairs and as an internationally acknowledged site of expertise in the water sector.
