Looking back and forward
In early November Watershare members met in Athens for their Annual Meeting, which was hosted by NTUA. The occasion marked the transition of Watershare to a cooperative platform based on tools and concrete projects. The meeting included two side-events. During the previous afternoon, a workshop was organised with the Athens (EYDAP) and Thessaloniki (EYATH) water utilities and the Office of Urban Resilience of the city of Athens. And the day after the meeting, EYDAP and NTUA organised a field visit to an innovative pilot on fresh water production from brackish water and subsequent infiltration, aimed to address water scarcity in the region of Marathon. Both the workshop and the field visit showed innovative work going on in Greece with high relevance for Watershare. Again, we would like to thank NTUA and partners for organising the programme. It was all very interesting and fruitful, as you will read in this newsletter.

Annual Meeting Athens: follow-up on Tokyo initiatives
At the Annual Meeting members looked back at the developments this year, including the new members, tools and projects. In addition, we further elaborated the plans we made during the IWA World Water Congress in Tokyo. These mean that Watershare members will focus on emerging substances, resilient urban water management and future-proof water infrastructures in the near future. Moreover, to broaden the scope of collaboration and partnerships instead of focusing on tools, Watershare will focus on actual collaboration on the basis of tools.
