Nominate a project for the POWER Best Practice Award

Do you know a project in Europe that has developed an innovative solution to problems in the field of sustainable water consumption? Nominate it for the POWER Best Practice Award for innovative water sustainability solutions. If your nomination is among the best voted ones, you can win the DROP water game!

Why nominate a project

With the effects of climate change becoming ever more evident, more areas in Europe and all over the world are at risk of drought and water scarcity. Milton Keynes is in one of the dryest areas in the UK. This makes it particularly important for the city to find and promote sustainable water consumption through good habits and lifestyles. Milton Keynes Council in collaboration with the POWER project is searching for inspiration from other places in Europe that have successfully implemented projects in the field of sustainable water consumption

How to nominate a project

If you know of a successfully implemented project in the field of sustainable water consumption, share details in the comments section below. This will nominate it for the POWER Best Practice Award for innovative solutions for sustainable water consumption.

Nominating a project is simple:


Just go to the comment section below and post a very brief description (2-3 sentences) of the project you are nominating, ideally with a link to its website where more information can be found. You don't need to be part of the project to nominate a project for the award but you need to be registered to the platform. The nominated project can be from any European city. 


Deadline for nominating a project is September 1st, 2019.

By nominating a project for the POWER Best Practice Award, you are contributing to the establishment of a Europe-wide database of water sustainability practices. After the end of the nomination phase, the POWER jury of innovation, water and sustainability experts will select the top three nominated projects that will win the POWER Best Practice Award. The three award winners will have the chance to present their projects in front of a high-level international audience of water experts and municipal representatives at the POWER conference in Brussels between October 9-10, 2019. 

Win the DROP game

If your nomination is among the 10 most popular projects, you will be rewarded with one of 10 interactive DROP! water games that help you learn about water sustainability in a funny, engaging and visually appealing way.

For the nomination to become popular, please share the link to your nomination comment in your personal network and ask your friends to like it and reply to it. Keep it mind that this will also help the project you are nominating - the POWER jury will take into account the ammount of support (comments and likes) that a nomination has gained.
