Event Details

The New York State Department of Environmental Protection (NYC DEP), in partnership with Access Cities, today launched the Urban Water Vision Challenge for new and innovative and scalable ideas, technologies, and approaches to discover how stormwater can be successfully captured and treated to optimize benefits, reduce risks to public health and promote co-benefits.

The overall challenge question is: 

How can innovative stormwater treatment and reuse practices help urban areas address the challenges of flooding and recreational water quality exacerbation caused by shifts in rain patterns due to climate change? 

Join the kick-off webinar 23rd February 2021, and the three workshops to learn about the challenges in more detail and what the process and key dates of activities for you to get involved in.

Each of the co-creation workshops is for multi-sector groups to co-develop several potential feasible solution ideas to the city challenge, to be later pitched to a panel of senior city stakeholders.

Key Dates 
Workshop 1: Wednesday 17th March 15:00-18:00 (10:00-13:00 EST).
The first workshop will focus on detail presentations from both NYC and CPH on the challenges and will allow the participants to have the first focused Q&As. The participating companies will then get to 2-3 mins (depending on how many are attending) to pitch their company / technology to the other participants including time for Q&A.  Finally, the companies will be encouraged to match-up and invited onto the online digital platform space.

Workshop 2 ‘Ideation, brainstorming and prioritization’: Wednesday 14th April 15:00-18:00 (09:00-11:00 EST).
Companies will work in groups brainstorm initial solution ideas based on their dialogues prior to the workshop. During the workshop there will be breakout rooms for participant to write their ideas on virtual sticky notes using a MURAL board. The goal isn’t a perfect idea, it’s lots of ideas, collaboration, and openness to wild solutions. The only way to get to good ideas is to have lots to choose from.

Workshop 3 ‘Developing one idea for the pitch session’: Wednesday 28th April 15:00-18:00 (09:00-11:00 EST).
A pitch is a great way to communicate an idea, how it works, why it counts, and who it benefits. And in the process of making it, participants will clarify the key elements of their idea and refine how they talk about them. A pitch is a primary way that they will present their idea, and they will be using it to convince different types of people—from other companies to potential city officials to rally to their cause.

Pitching Session: May (exact date TBC).
The participating companies will be able to present the co-creation solutions in front of a panel of judges including the city representatives. More to come on the date and time – as well as the venue setup for the final pitching session.
