Towards a Water Sensitive City of 3.5 Million

This conference has ended and bookings are closed. Stay in touch for our next Conference.

The Conference brought together guest speakers and delegates from some of the leading management, planning and infrastructure organisations to exchange ideas and information about meeting the challenges facing Perth as its population grows towards 3.5 million.

For over 25 years now, since the Western Australian Water Resources Council released a report coining the term Water Sensitive Urban Design the concepts embedded within the term have spread around the world. As Perth looks forward to its future as a city of over 3.5 million people, urban intensification and renewal must accompany and support further urban expansion. 

There are many challenges facing our communities and infrastructure as we plan for growth and it is time to refocus and consider the ways that each of us can contribute to a water sensitive future for Perth.

The Conference was spread over two full days, including presentations from a wide range of community and industry spokespeople on building a water sensitive city of 3.5 million people.


When: 21-22 April 2015
Where: City of Canning Function Room, City of Canning, Perth, WA
