RiverSymposium - Sydney

International Riversymposium 14-18 October, Darling Harbour – Sydney

Program is now live!

This year, the theme of Embracing Innovation cuts across many of the conference sessions—from Engagement, Inclusiveness and Ethics to Communicating Science and Environmental and Cultural Flows. This theme recognises the role and need for innovation in addressing the challenges of changing climate, population growth and other pressures on our rivers and communities; through technology, capacity building, community engagement, cost effective monitoring and innovative partnerships and finance mechanisms.

Riversymposium’s program includes internationally recognised keynote speakers, engaging presentations and diverse Learn-Inspire-Transform workshops—interactive sessions designed to arm delegates with new knowledge and ideas to invest into their own work.

Riversymposium is renowned for bringing together a varied audience of industry, academia, government, NGOs and community groups, and offers unrivalled opportunities to build relationships, share knowledge, collaborate and obtain leads for future partnerships. Riverexpo also provides the opportunity to speak one-on-one with a range of organisations about products, services and programs they are currently involved with.

This year, full registration ($AUD 1,295) also includes a ticket to the prestigious Riverprize gala dinner where the Australasian and Asian Riverprize winners, the 2018 Emerging River Professional Award winner and the Vera Thiess Fellowship for Women are all announced.
