The fifth Australian Young Water Professionals Conference is a co-branded event presented by the Australian Water Association and the International Water Association. Collaboration between industry, research and government will be explored as well as the value of connection. The topics discussed will be:

  • connect: network with inspiring young water professionals and build connections for future collaboration; continuing professional development over two days through workshops, presenting and networking
  • collaborate: how we can strengthen partnerships between research, industry, universities and government; interdisciplinary alliances (including specialists outside of the water sector); how can we engage with our customers and communities on a local, national and/or international level; how can we deliver projects with multiple stakeholders and meet their expectations
  • accelerate: how to capture and hold the interest of a diverse range of stakeholders to address ‘wicked’ water problems; innovation at all stages of project delivery, from options analysis to functional and detailed design, from community engagement through to construction; how the water industry can leverage other industries and government sectors to achieve better outcomes for the community (e.g. integrated landscapes, value capture, preventative health).
