Water, 2021 major cause of the WIS
Organized at the Palais de la Bourse in Bordeaux, the World Impact Summit 2021 was structured around four thematic half-days (zero carbon objective, circular economy, recovery plan and nature and biodiversity), animated by conferences, workshops and thematic debates.
This 2021 edition having made water its great cause, the discussions covered a variety of topics, from anticipating the effects of climate change by European territories to nature-based solutions, through decentralized cooperation in water and sanitation.
