International event: “Climate change: we are all responsible”

Wednesday, 09 December 2015 Posted in News, BeWater News

Over eight days, 20 organizations from Brazil and Europe had shared good practices for the wide audience. The objective of the event was to contribute to efforts to contain climate change on the following topics: water, energy, solid waste, land use and agriculture, urbanisation and urban mobility, security and climate.

EU ambassador in Brazil, João Gomes Cravinho, said, “Important part of our work is cooperation with our international partners. It is impressive to see the incredible range of climate initiatives and solutions emerging and building up in different parts of the world.” International cooperation is important for us as well due to obvious fact that only working together we will be able to change our habits which are essential to the survival of the planet in the context of climate change.

During the event “Climate Week: We are All Responsible”, a Nexus Café was organised in order to stimulate the creation of new project ideas, foster networking and to create connections between initiatives and stakeholders which attended the event.

The Project Café is a simple, effective and flexible format for hosting from small to large group dialogue around the overall thematic baseline “Water-Energy-Food-Climate Nexus”. The objective of the dialogue dynamics was gathering ideas, stimulating creative and interactive solutions, with a practical vision.

BeWater partner Europe for Business participated in this international event and presented the BeWater Project.
