VIC YWP Seminar PD 3 - Aboriginal Water Values - 23 Nov 2017
Don't miss Part 3 of the annual seminar series for Young Water Professionals in Victoria - "Aboriginal Water"
The 2017 YWP Professional Development series has been designed to encourage young professionals to think differently about:

1. How we deliver solutions with and for our customers, clients and communities - 20 April
2. The different ways we can deliver water and sanitation solutions in disaster situations - 7 September
3. How we collaborate with Aboriginal groups - 23 November

The Victorian Government Water for Victoria plan included a strong focus on understanding Aboriginal water values and uses and committed the Victorian water industry to incorporate Aboriginal customary knowledge into water management.

The purpose of this Professional Development Seminar is to provide an introduction to the government policy agenda for Aboriginal Water and discuss the implications this will have on the Victorian water industry. This seminar will also provide an opportunity to learn about recent work happening in this field and some of the emerging tools available to incorporate Aboriginal values into water planning and management.
