The Swedish Water & Wastewater Association is hosting a convention together with Kretslopp och vatten, Göteborgs Stad, in Gothenburg to discuss our national use of water and how to make it more sustainable. They also aim to educate and inspire people to care more about this life-sustaining substance that we have so much of, but sometimes take for granted. Mattias will be on stage, celebrating water in all its forms, on Wednesday May 11, 15.30 - 16.30 at Svenska Mässan.
Mattias is speaking at the VIP-inaguration in Värtahamnen in Stockholm where Fortum has built a new renewable energy plant. Fortum is working towards producing 100% renewable energy and strive to make cities around the world more sustainable and clean. The new plant will reduce the use of fossil fuels in their original plant which will save Stockholm from 126 000 tonnes of carbon dioxide pollution a year. That is about as much as one months worth of traffic in the capital.
The Swedish Water & Wastewater Association, SWWA, was set up by the municipalities in 1962 to assist with technical, economic and administrative issues and to represent the interests of the municipalities in negotiations with authorities and other organisations on regulations. Mattias and SWWA will work together to educate and raise awareness of the value of water and the need for long term sustainable solutions.
