Bouncing ideas, bouncing tables - Living Rivers funding project scoping workshop

Thursday 15th Sep 2016 1:30PM - 4:30PM

Melbourne Water Offices
990 La Trobe Street, Docklands, Victoria, 3008

Registrations are now closed

This workshop is part of the Clearwater / Melbourne Water Living Rivers Partnership. 

Project scoping workshop

The next round of Melbourne Water’s Living Rivers funding program will open in early September and close on 5 October with over $4 million available for the 2016/17 and 2017/18 financial years. To get ideas and collaboration flowing for your next funding application you are invited to a grant pre-application project scoping workshop at Melbourne Water.

The workshop will follow an informal World Café style where ideas are bounced between participants and themed discussion stations. You are invited to travel between stations as you please to gather, share, discuss and test project ideas in collaboration with other councils. This will be a great opportunity to talk to your peers and the Living Rivers Coordinators about your ideas and previous successes. Representatives from Water Retail companies will also be present.

The event will be followed by (optional) informal networking drinks at a nearby venue.
