Die Konferenz zum Thema „Innovative Solutions for Sustainable Smart Cities“ verstand sich als Plattform für eine dialogische Auseinandersetzung zu den rasanten Veränderungs- und Anpassungskonzepten von urbanen Räumen weltweit auf dem Weg zu nachhaltigen Ansätzen wie dem der „Smart City“. Diskutiert wurde, wie die Wasserwirtschaft Teil dieses Veränderungsprozesses werden kann und welche Chancen sich daraus für die Erreichung der UN-Nachhaltigkeitsziele der Agenda 2030 (insbesondere SDG 6 und SDG 11) ergeben.

Zentrales Element der am 22. Oktober 2018 in der Humboldt Box stattfindenden Konferenz war ein Worldcafé. Dieses baute auf vier Themenarealen auf, zu denen jeweils ausgewiesene Fachleute aus der internationalen Praxis referierten und mit den Gästen anschließend in den Dialog traten.
