The Environment & Waterways Alliance is hosting an exciting workshop - in partnership with SPLASH and Water NSW - that will introduce participants to a fantastic methodology for developing multi-faceted projects that incorporate water sensitive urban design.

The approach is site-driven and aligns traditional stormwater principles with place-making benefits and the flexibility to cater for a variety of development types within the community.

This training will provide participants with the skills to:

  • Identify ways to meet community and environmental outcomes through good design
  • Communicate and engage with key stakeholders
  • Identify best practice design options and understand technical specifications
  • Promote collaborative thinking for design solutions and strategies and ownership of Living Waterways outcomes
  • Critique a ‘water-related project’ of the participants choice using the Living Waterways Framework
  • Use the ‘water-related project’ to work through key grant criteria to develop ‘shelf ready’ projects to take advantage of upcoming grant programs

This award winning framework is currently being used by a number of local and state Government organisations across NSW as a means of designing and delivering multi-functional stormwater projects.

Registration is for a multi-disciplinary team consisting of 5-8 individuals within Council based on a nominated water-related project to apply the Living Waterways Framework and work through key grant criteria. Subsidised for our Member Councils at the affordable cost of $1200 - a saving of $1000, this is a valuable workshop producing effective outcomes.

Aug

12:00pm12:00pm

K2W Gliders Monitoring Workshop

In collaboration with UNSW, UTS, Sydney University and K2W Glideways Program, the Landholder Collaboration project presents the K2W Gliders Monitoring Workshop: trialing and online collaboration tool for landholders.

This workshop will cover:

  • How to identify and monitor gliders on your property
  • How to improve glider habitat and corridors
  • Why working together for glider conservation is beneficial
  •  How to upload the information onto an online collaborative tool
  • How to use this data to make more informed land management decisions

What is the online tool?
We are giving the NSW Landcare Gateway program a make-over to become more user-friendly and useful for local communities. The tool will help groups communicate, plan and make decisions for a range of coordinated activities, including revegetation corridors, pest and weed management, goat and kangaroo harvesting, shared branding and ecotourism.

Functions of the tool include:

  • Uploading point- and area-specific data
  • Sharing information within a private group
  • Viewing activities of other local groups
  • Accessing GIS info in one location
  • Simple interface for slow Internet speeds
  • Use on your computer, phone or tablet

How can you participate?
Participation involves attending a local workshop with your group in August to learn more about how to use the online tool and how it can benefit you and the group in particular. You will then be requested to pilot-test the tool, including adding monitoring data and information of interest, over the following 3-4 months. Finally, there will be a follow-up workshop at the end of the year, giving you an opportunity to provide feedback and talk with invited professional experts about where your group can go from there.
If you are not part of a group but would still like to be involved in the trial, please contact us.
