Join us in Perth for the inaugural Connected by Water conference, where we will bring together a national and international audience to discuss sustainable water management in the West. Our bi-annual Young Water Professionals Conference is combined with Connected by Water, offering a unique opportunity for our sectors Young Professionals to reach a broader audience.

This cross-sector national conference will connect not only our water colleagues, but other stakeholders and industries that have an interest or dependency on the sustainable management of water including mining, energy, primary production and resources. Through technical content, site tours, networking opportunities and social functions, we will build relationships and foster opportunities to work together in the future.

Program
Connected by Water will focus on the way water underpins economic prosperity, communities, the environment and Indigenous connection to Country. It is an opportunity to discuss the intersection of water with other sectors across the economy.
