Event description

Description

Melbourne Water is strengthening our collaboration with stakeholders and the community in the way we manage waterways in the Yarra catchment. This is a unique and exciting opportunity to work together to create and shape the future of the Yarra Catchment.

We invite you to work with community and key stakeholders to discover opportunities and co-design solutions that will guide on-ground activities in the catchment over the next 10 years.

Our second workshop in the series will be on 29 November and is one not to be missed!

We will hear back from our volunteer group on the draft catchment goals, and from the Yarra Strategic Plan team on what the community told us they value about the Yarra. Special guest speaker, Dr. Yung En Chee, will provide an overview of scenario modelling and the impacts of urbanisation and climate change on waterways in the region. We will begin to tackle the process for collaborating on actions and targets while continuing to work together on what co-ownership of the strategy might look like.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Inclusions:

Arrival tea/coffee, morning tea and lunch will be provided.

Optional: 45 minute walking tour offered to attendees of workshop 2:

The La Trobe Golf Club and Melbourne Water are offering an optional site tour after the workshop 2 formalities have finished from 2.15pm - 3pm. The tour offers participants insights into the local area, at the confluence of the Darebin Creek and Yarra River, and healthy waterways work including stream frontage, diversions and the Darebin trail link. Numbers are limited to 20 people so registration is essential. Registration details will be sent out with the workshop 2 confirmation details.

RSVP - Registration essential!

Registrations close Monday 27 November at 5pm. Please register via eventbrite to reserve your place.

For those who can't come along to the first workshop or the entire series, there will be an opportunity to influence the strategy online via the Healthy Waterways Strategy engagement platform.
