Urban Waters is a network of researchers, planners and practitioners that looks at the ecological potential of streams, ponds, rivers and lakes in cities. As an interdisciplinary research network based in Berlin, it connects local, national and international stakeholders. Urban Waters looks at river revitalisation and river basin management in urban contexts, taking into account the interactions of freshwater ecology and biodiversity with water management, climate adaptation, recreation, public health and urban design.
On April 21th 2018 we organized an event as part of the World Fish Migration Day 2018 next to a fish ladder at river Panke in Berlin. We informed people about fish migration and the importance of barrier-free streams and answered many questions about river Panke, its fish and the meaning of the World Fish Migration Day. Besides our exhibition on migratory fish especially kids were interested in our small fish tank where we showed three local fish species of river Panke. Find attached some pictures of the event.Read more
