Vivid waterbodies for vivid cities

The interdisciplinary research network connects local, national and international stakeholder, active in the field of restoration ecology, biodiversity and recreation research in aquatic urban environments.
To do so, we develop an information platform to bring knowledge and experience in restoration and recreation ecology together, organise information events, create material and also encourage new research questions to restore urban waters.

BORDA and the Habitat Unit of the Technical University of Berlin would like to announce an international symposium in Berlin dedicated to exploring ways to transform burgeoning urban areas into “water-wise cities” that are healthy, productive and liveable.
