VIC Bushfire Recovery Solutions Hackathon

VIC Bushfire Recovery Solutions Hackathon
**This event will be delayed due to our concerns around having a group of people together in one space for 8 hours in light of the coronavirus risks. ** We are looking for the water sectors knowledge, skills and passion for water! This event is an 8-hour initiative to mobilise the collective intellectual capacity of professionals across the Victorian water industry to make a meaningful contribution to the crisis facing our state, and its pending recovery.

Fee includes participation in the Hackathon - all catering and an opportunity to contribute to workable solutions!

On the day, teams will tackle a number of problem statements through the format of a hackathon competition. The statements are being developed in consultation with the local water authorities, CMAs, local government, DELWP, Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander groups as well as other industry associations, to ensure that we are focused on real problems that are important to those most affected. 

Format of the day:

12 noon 
Kick off session over lunch, during which there will be short pitches to promote the challenges to enable participants to select a challenge they feel most aligned with.

We then break up into small working teams to develop practical solutions to current challenges faced.

Workshops including afternoon tea

Pitches of solutions to decide winners

Networking & refreshments


AWA Victorian Branch are also hoping to attract sponsor dollars towards the initial development & implementation of the winning solutions. If this is of interest, please email
