Webinar - Bushfire Hackathon Series (VIC)

Webinar - Bushfire Hackathon Series (VIC)
With Australia currently facing two major crises, we're fortunate to have a water industry that's adaptable and resourceful. Our WEBINAR series VIC Bushfire Recovery Hackathon aims to help tackle bushfire recovery challenges whilst adapting to the current physical distancing measures.

We will start the webinar series with a “Dealing with Disaster” webinar in May, followed by a presentation of the challenges in June to form teams for the hackathon competition. We will then have two check up meetings and finish off in August with pitch presentations of all solutions followed by the selection of a winner. 

The statements are being developed in consultation with 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 and develop practical solutions.
