12 September 2016 saw the launch of the third call for projects “Action for water resources”. This call for projects is part of a global SUEZ programme in France aiming to support concrete and sustainable actions that contribute to the conservation of water resources, and to raise awareness of this issue amongst the greatest number.
The call for projects is open to individual and collective initiatives taken by NGOs, entrepreneurs, researchers and private individuals, etc. The projects would have to relate to one of those 5 themes:
• reducing the impact of human activity on water resources
• protecting the healthy ecological condition of water masses in order to better conserve the environment and biodiversity
• sharing data and information on water (quality, points of access, origin, etc.) so that they become accessible to all
• anticipating the consequences of climate change for water resources
• paying closer attention to water-related issues in urban developments
The jury, co-chaired by Bertrand Camus, CEO of SUEZ’s water business in France, and Serge Lepeltier, Chairman of the Académie de l’Eau and former French Minister of Ecology and Sustainable Development, will include representatives from various institutions, universities and associations, as well as leading figures from within the company
Winners will be announced in March 2017 and the selected projects will receive financial backing and support from SUEZ in the development of their project.
The call for projects will close on 31 December 2016.
