After LIFE Plan – for follow-up activities after Project completion
Presentations of international conference of projects LIFE UrbanStorm and Interreg CB CleanStormWater
The conference took place on November 9-10, 2022.
• 1st day 9:30 – 16:00 LIFE UrbanStorm project results
• Day 2 9:30 – 13:15 Interreg CB CleanStormWater project results
Location: Viimsi Artium, Randvere tee 20, Viimsi Municipality
The purpose of the conference was to summarise the results of two cross-border cooperation projects, LIFE UrbanStorm and CleanStormWater, by exchanging information, experiences, and best practices:
• how to develop sustainable and climate-proof stormwater systems, and
• how to reduce the load of nutrients, dangerous substances, and toxins from storm water systems to the Baltic Sea.
The conference also provided an opportunity to generate new ideas for further activities and policies in the field.
The conference programme consisted of:
• Providing a general overview of the development/implementation of climate change adaptation plans
• Presentation of practical solutions used in different countries of the Baltic Sea region
• Viimsi Sustainable Drainage Systems (SUDS) and storm water treatment solutions site visit
