Clearwater delivered an interactive workshop around the topic of liveability as part of the 2013 Stormwater Victoria Conference, held in Melbourne on May 7th and 8th.
The session, entitled ‘Liveability - resilience and prosperity’, was attended by over 100 delegates and complemented the more traditional conference structure of concurrent sessions and keynote addresses.
The aim of the workshop was to give attendees (1) a framework for reflecting on the liveability aspects of the conference presentations, and (2) an opportunity to think about how they can contribute to liveability through their own work.
Facilitated by Jamie Ewert from Melbourne Water and the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities, the workshop was split into two interactive sessions, each followed by some time for sharing and reporting back to all attendees.
Clearwater’s Hot Topics seminar series is a peer-to-peer learning and networking initiative which is delivered in partnership with local councils, Melbourne Waters Living Rivers program and other relevant industry bodies. These events focus on current and topical sustainable urban water management issues providing expert and practitioner presentations and a focus on facilitated discussion.
