Overview

To achieve political support for the change in policy and practice needed to facilitate our transition to water sensitive cities requires a water literate and engaged community. Presentations by the Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities researchers will provide greater understanding of current levels of water literacy across different socio-demographic groups and geographic regions in Australia, and guidance on strategies to engage with community members on issues of water sensitivity.

Who should attend

Local Government, NRM and water utilities practitioners with a role in strategic planning, sustainability, communications and marketing, and community engagement.
