Water is crucial for our everyday lives. If water becomes scarce, it can constrain new developments that take place in Milton Keynes. 
In the POWER project, Milton Keynes Council is working on an ICT-platform that brings water to the attention of citizens, cities, utilities, and other organizations that have a stake in water saving. Different ideas exist to visualize how much water you use, and about how to motivate people to think about water. To make this platform a success, it is important to discuss these ideas with everyone who will be using the platform.
The Sustainability Team at Milton Keynes Council  would like to invite you to participate in a workshop to discuss your opinions about water consumption in Milton Keynes, how citizens can save water and how saving water can be supported by modern IT systems.
