INNOVATIONS WITH WATER: Design for a climate resilient city

When:  Wednesday 26 April, 5:30 to 6:30pm
Where:  NTRO, 80a Turner Street Port Melbourne

Water has always played a significant role in Fishermans Bend.  From Aboriginal Creation stories, to flooding of low-lying areas and mitigating the impacts of climate change, our relationship with water is key to the past, present and future of Fishermans Bend.

Join us to learn about the role water sensitive urban design plays in making Australia’s largest urban renewal project, an innovative and climate resilient city.

Hear from Professor Tony Wong, from Water Sensitive Cities Australia, about using water as a powerful enabler of urban liveability, sustainability, productivity and resilience, and the opportunity that creates for precincts like Fishermans Bend.

We’ll also learn about the Remix Raingarden project, just one of many great initiatives in Fishermans Bend to embed water sensitive and circular economy principles within urban design projects.   Led by Amira Moshinsky, and a team from the University of Melbourne, the REMIX Raingarden was the winner of the 2022 Fishermans Bend Innovation Challenge and the pilot is being launched at this event.

Come from 5pm to see a demonstration of the raingardens, talk to the team and learn more about the waste materials being used and data being collected.

Presentations will be followed by Q&A and light refreshments.

Free, but bookings essential.
