Innovative, Resilient and Future Ready
I have the pleasure in welcoming you to the 2017 Stormwater Conference to be held in Auckland, New Zealand, in May 2017.
This conference theme of Innovative, Resilient and Future Ready provides the platform to introduce, explore, address and challenge the way the industry responds to the impacts of stormwater on the environment.
The Conference will explore ways to manage and integrate stormwater, from the concept and design, through to construction and into operation and maintenance.
Innovation needs to be introduced, explored and embraced within the industry and its collaborative partners to push the boundaries of the urban infrastructure and support industry growth in our city centres.
Resilient stormwater infrastructure is supported by a collaborative approach from design to implementation. This theme has been explored previously and this conference will continue to share examples, acknowledge and celebrate this important component of providing resilient systems.
Future Ready is a progressive way of introducing the challenge of supporting an urban environment that can meet the needs of a growing population and to incorporate the innovation and resilience required by society.
The selection of themes and sub-themes have been designed to attract technical papers, expert panel sessions, open discussion forums and exhibitions to provoke thoughts, challenge stormwater practitioners’ thinking and knowledge while expanding their views on holistic stormwater management.
I invite you to submit your abstract and participate in this innovative Conference which will celebrate, acknowledge and share many great examples undertaken in this industry whilst challenging today’s thinking and expanding views on holistic stormwater management.
Chair, Water New Zealand Stormwater Conference Committee
