National Water Week 2017

National Water Week 2017

National Water Week 2017

Each year, National Water Week makes a splash across Australia inspiring individuals, communities and organisations to work together to build community awareness and understanding around water issues and opportunities for growth and innovation.

The 2017 National Water Week theme is 'Water; the Heart of Our Culture'.

National Water Week provides  an opportunity to remind ourselves and teach others that water must be used wisely if there is to be enough to meet the needs of our future generations.

While the week is dedicated to encouraging communities to take action to protect our vital water sources, it's also a celebration of innovation and water achievements that have and will contribute to Australia's sustainable future and economic prosperity.
