Systems of urban streams and their interaction with urban green infrastructure play a key role in urban innovation and the transformation of cities into environments that positively affect people’s health and well-being. This panel discusses the ways in which devastated waterways in our cities can be revitalized and, instead of treating the consequences, permanently eliminate the causes of their pollution. The gathered experts will analyze several different case studies, from carefully nurtured natural resources, such as the Gradac River near Valjevo, to examples where human negligence, greed and insufficient professional management of these valuable resources have brought the quality of urban streams to a state of great danger to human health, like the Cukarica tributary t the Topciderska river. Experts in this field will share examples of good European practices that simultaneously solve the problems of urban wastewater treatment by applying modern, efficient, affordable and environmentally friendly methodologies. Through the innovative European projects euPOLIS and HEART, in whose international scientific teams a large number of domestic and regional experts participate, these methods and technologies are available as a choice to domestic decision-makers as well. The goal of this conversation is to raise awareness of the benefits of innovative sustainable approaches to the revitalization of urban waterways that will motivate domestic experts and decision-makers to really make that important step forward for all of us.
