Sino-Swiss Sustainability Forum
“Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it.” -- Lao Tzu
Water is life. Floods, shortages or contamination are significant risks to our urban existence. Good management of this key resource between public and private sectors greatly improves the resilience of our towns and cities.
The Swiss-Chinese Association and the Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries join forces with Swiss Re Institute and SWISSWATER organized the 2nd Sino-Swiss Sustainability Forum on Urban Water Management on 13 July 2021. The forum was held in a hybrid format. The two main meeting venues in Zurich and Beijing connected virtually with eight other Chinese cities. The aim of the event is to discuss urban water risk management; to enhance collaboration between societies in China and Switzerland; and to jointly increase resilience in our management, use and distribution of water.
Following the successful inaugural event in Jinan, China in 2017, this forum brough together government officials, academics and corporate representatives from China and Switzerland
