Held in Brisbane on 12-13 March 2020, the Australian Water Association and International Water Association Young Water Professionals Conference will bring together future leaders of industry, research and government around a central theme - “What's your water story?”.


Water connects us all irrespective of location, race, gender, culture and identity. Water supports our lives, our prosperity and our planet. We all have a story connected to water, and we want to hear yours. We asked for your inspiring tales about water industry projects and research, challenges and solutions, and/or stories about water, culture and how they interact.

Program Highlights:

  • Three streams running over the two days featuring 24 technical presentations and 12 inspiring water stories
  • Five interactive workshops to get you thinking and collaborating with other Young Water Professionals
  • Structured networking opportunities including the conference dinner, amazing race, site tours and more
