Slovenia’s Bled Water Festival, in cooperation with the Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning, has launched an international call for awards for innovative and sustainable solutions that cover the entire water cycle and preserve the aquatic environment.

The Bled Water Festival, held in the Slovenian town of Bled, will this year award the best water projects for the fifth time in a row. The aim is to attract water-related solutions from around the globe and improve the quality of life and the transition to a green economy, as the water footprint becomes an increasingly important part of a successful economy and industries, the organizers said in an announcement.

This year’s Bled Water Festival takes place on June 10-11

This year’s edition of the Bled Water Festival will take place on June 10 and 11, bringing together international organizations, businesspeople, representatives of state bodies, experts, activists, and investors. The event will highlight acute and current topics on the conservation of water resources and the aquatic environment and share examples of good practice.

The contest is open to corporate, national and individual projects

The Responsible Towards Water Awards competition is open to governments, the private sector, experts, and civil society. A jury will award the best projects in six categories – four corporate awards, one national award, and one individual award. The deadline for applications is May 31, and the regional winner in each category will be announced on June 11.

Eligible to apply are micro, small, medium, and large enterprises from around the world that provide services, products and solutions connected with improving the quality of water resources and reduced water use; national projects that include examples of good practice in this field; and relevant projects developed by individuals, associations, or non-governmental organizations.

This year’s competition is supported by partners from eight countries (Austria, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary, Monaco, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Serbia), including the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Croatian Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development, the Serbian Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management, the Czech Ministry of the Environment, and the Slovak Ministry of the Environment.
