This study tour will focus on the linkage between agriculture and the sanitation systems in Sweden, demonstrated by a new project that has been developed in close cooperation between the municipality of Södertälje, local farmers and farming organizations.

The research in sustainable sanitation and reuse of wastewater to agriculture has an established history in Sweden but has not yet managed to scale up systems on a municipal level. In order to close the loop on sanitation, wastewater has to be seen as a resource. This process needs actors from many different sectors to cooperate and stakeholders from agriculture have to be involved from the beginning. This visit gives you an opportunity to meet experts and researchers and also discuss the case of blackwater reuse with farmers and politicians.

Price: 400 SEK (Transportation and refreshments included)
