About this Event

WESTERN SYDNEY UNIVERSITY

RESEARCH WEEK EVENT

Water Symposium

Thursday 24 October - Penrith Campus

Research Week celebrates research at Western Sydney University and is an opportunity for staff, students and the community to see the exciting research, facilities and talent at Western. It is also an opportunity to hear from partners, industry and communities about how we might identify together research gaps and priorities and translate evidence-based research to shared concerns and issues.

This year, Research Week takes place on 21–25 October 2019 and the Environmental and Sustainability Research Theme is hosting a one day Water Research Symposium that aims to bring together our researchers with industry, government and community experts.

Collaborative research partnerships are crucial for responding to the urgently needed global transitions to a shared and lasting prosperity as identified in the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As summarised in Sustainable Development Goal #6 some of these shared problems range from how to protect and restore water-related ecosystems, including mountains, forests, wetlands, rivers, aquifers and lakes to improving water quality by reducing pollution, eliminating dumping and minimizing release of hazardous chemicals and materials, halving the proportion of untreated wastewater and substantially increasing recycling and safe reuse globally.

Free lunch and morning tea will be provided!
