More about the Asia Premiere

Our Blue World: A Water Odyssey, celebrates the human relationship with water and explores how ancient wisdom combined with modern technology can restore our waterways, hydrate the land and help cool our planet.


Film Poster

Planet Earth is in the grip of an environmental crisis. Extreme floods, forest fires, droughts and bio-diversity loss have made life precarious. At the heart of it is water, and the modern world's disconnection from its ways. We have forgotten what our ancestors understood deeply: water always wins and is the driving force of nature.

Now, this ground-breaking documentary, Our Blue World, narrated by Liam Neeson, introduces some extraordinary individuals who are rediscovering the ancient wisdom of our ancestors and demonstrating how it can inform a new, modern consciousness that can help us navigate towards a better future.

Brilliant empathetic characters including Li An Phoa, who has walked 15,000km of the world's rivers, Kongjian Yu, the radical architect behind the revolutionary Sponge City concept, Mark Nelson, who spent 2 years in the experimental Biosphere 2 and Vered Engelhard, who is discovering the ancient water techniques of the Andes, will accompany viewers on an unprecedented journey around the world on which they will encounter water as they have never seen it before.

Filmed with epic production values in the USA, Canada, Cambodia, Peru, China, Ireland, the Netherlands, Burundi and New Zealand, this beautiful documentary celebrates the wonder of water, revealing how since the beginning of time water defined our meaning, our spirituality, our lives and our joys through every precious drop.

Ultimately, Our Blue World is a film of hope, showing how each one of us has the power through our lives with water to transform this planet for the good.

Understanding Optical Flow Monitoring

More about the forum

Efficient flow monitoring networks are a fundamental component of water resource and flood management, and this has become more evident with the impacts of climate change and significant flood events globally. The current water engineering solutions for establishing flow monitoring sites are based on well-established methods that can provide accurate and reliable flow records overtime. These solutions, however, are dependent on a significant number of resources over a prolonged period to develop accurate stage-discharge ratings. Xylem Water Solutions Australia in conjunction with The University of Queensland (Hutley et al.) developed a non-contact flow gauging solution that's based on surface velocity and water level measurements within a channel reach. The system makes use of stereo cameras for remote sensing of surface velocities and water level to develop adaptive stage-discharge rating curve for flow calculations. The adaptive stage-discharge rating curve is continuously assessed from surface velocity and water level measurements over consecutive flow events to provide the most accurate flow record within the flow monitoring site and hydraulic conditions. The fundamental principles of the solution, key features, and its ability to enhance current flow monitoring programs will be discussed during the workshop.

More about the forum

PUB and The Institution of Engineers, Singapore will be jointly organizing the Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters (ABC Waters) Seminar 2024 on 21 Jun 2024, 9.30am to 12.35pm. This year, the seminar will be held in conjunction with the Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) at the Sands Expo & Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands.

The seminar which is themed “ABC Waters Seminar – Nature-based Solution for Urban Liveability and Climate Resilience” will bring together a panel of subject-matter experts who will share topics on nature-based solutions and blue-green infrastructure to create sustainable, climate resilient and liveable cities.

Speakers include Mr Dmitrjs Obolevics, Mr Leonard Ng and Mr Kenneth Ng. There will be a Q&A segment moderated by Ms Yvonne Tan at the end of the speakers’ presentations.
