AVK World Water Award 2020

Win the AVK World Water Award Share your case story with us and have the chance to win participation on our two-week water summer school 2020! 22-01-2020

On 22nd March every year, we celebrate World Water Day and it is about focusing attention on the importance of water. This year’s theme is Water and Climate Change – and how the two are inextricably linked.

At AVK, we focus on water’s complete journey through society, and on the utmost efficient management in all aspects. This includes minimising water losses and NRW, applying smart management solutions, and in considering wastewater and waste as valuable sources to energy.

Share your case story: To celebrate the day, AVK invites all customers and partners to take part in a case story contest; tell us how your company has contributed to more sustainable water infrastructures, and to our common UN sustainable development goals.

To participate, simply submit a recent case story (in English) that reflects a contribution to a more sustainable future through better handling of water; preferably using AVK products. This could be an optimised water supply delivering safer drinking water to the community, an NRW level reduction, a wastewater/waste to energy project, or a smart concept to assist in more efficient management.

Win a complete water knowledge upgrade
This year’s winning prize is an all-inclusive seat at our yearly “Advanced Water Cycle Management" course - an intensive, two-week knowledge upgrade regarding latest water technologies, concepts and semi-practical tasks – and, of course, loads of fun and networking with participants from all over the world. 

Venue: Låsby, Denmark

The prize includes course fee (value €2,280), full accommodation and transportation, visit to the AVK headquarters in Denmark and round-trip flights (economy class).

There is no single format for the case story. However, it must contain a timeline and general purpose, a description of the process incl. before and after data (in English), and a picture or visualization of the process or the results.
