Congress Economy of a Water City 2021


Agata Wąsowska-Pawlik, director of the International Cultural Centre, Łukasz Galusek, deputy program director and prof. Jacek Purchla took part in the session devoted to the Danube during the Congress "City - Water - Quality of Life" held on October 25 and 26 in Wrocław as part of the Open Eyes Economy Summit.

The main topic of this year's congress was the complexity of ecosystems, including mainly aquatic ones, which contribute to human well-being and well-being. They can be measured not only in terms of economic values, but also environmental, social and health values. The aim of the Congress was to educate and improve public awareness of ecology and environmental behavior. It is of equal importance to integrate the activities of enterprises, farms and companies in the field of water management and treatment so that clean water is available to all, even the poorest inhabitants.

However, the congress is also an opportunity for a comprehensive debate on environmental problems affecting the quality of life, spatial planning that takes into account the aquatic environment, and how water management affects cities and their inhabitants, so the organizers do not forget about the cultural aspects related to water, showing them at example of the Danube, which has become a monumental carrier of historical, collective and cultural memory of Central Europe. Agata Wąsowska-Pawlik presented HERITO No. 31: Danube - the river of memory and Łukasz Galusek took part in a conversation on the Danube phenomenon, moderated by prof. Jacek Purchla.
