QWMN Community of Practice - career ambitions and water modelling: where do they align?


Join us at the first QWMN Community of Practice (CoP) event for the year – especially designed for young water professionals – to share and discuss the effective use of water models and how water models relate to various professional roles.

Queensland has many water management challenges. From competing uses for water resources, to a shifting desire for more sustainable and livable urban designs, water management challenges are becoming increasingly complex. More and more water modelling tools are being used to measure the impact and better manage these complex challenges.

In Australia, we have a reasonably good track record in managing water, but there is still room for improvement, especially in developing a deeper understanding of sound water planning and management practices.

QWMN Community of Practice

The QWMN CoP events are designed to bring together a broad cross-section of the modelling community, including modellers, end-users and other actors in the sector. The events are designed to share skills and knowledge, generate mutual understanding and a common language, and build the desire to collaborate and innovate across the sector.

Young water professionals CoP event

This QWMN CoP event is for young water professionals, where you will have the opportunity to explore and discuss the effective use of water models and how water models relate to your various professional roles. This is especially important as your career grows in the water and allied sectors and will help to inform your understanding and decision-making capacity in relation to the roles of water models and their use.

The event is suited to young water professionals who have experience in the water sector as a:

  • model developer
