Webinar - Water Sensitive Cities Improving Resilience (VIC)

Webinar - Water Sensitive Cities Improving Resilience (VIC)
In the face of a rapidly changing world, Water Sensitive City initiatives are building resilience by empowering organisations and communities to fully harness the urban water cycle and better utilise ecosystem services for a range of benefits. What are the lessons that we can take away from some of Victoria’s best examples of water sensitive engagement and design?

Join us for an engaging technical event that will share key lessons learnt in delivering water sensitive city programs.

You’ll hear from three speakers with diverse experiences in delivering water sensitive city initiatives.  A panel discussion with Q&A will follow presentations by our speakers.

Thursday 30 July
