Under the theme BLUE-GREEN CITIES, the 2nd edition of the Indonesia Water Challenge in 2016-2017 engaged students and young professionals in Indonesia with the challenges of sustainable city development. Participants created their own ideas and solutions for Blue-Green Indonesian cities, supported by local and international experts.
On 29 and 30 March, Semarang was once again home to the Young City Leaders Water Academy. After the launch in November, it was time for the teams to present their final proposals for a sustainable, resilient and liveable Semarang. During the closing seminar, senior statekholders from the city gathered to join the presentations and select the winning team. Coming out on top was the team from Institut Teknologi Bandung and Universitas Diponegoro with their redevelopment plan for the Kali Semarang Waterfront called "ECONNECTED CITY".
