When:              Wednesday 20 March 2019, 5pm–9pm

Where:             Adelaide Convention Centre

It’s been another hot and dry summer in Adelaide. In January 2019, we recorded 10 days over 35oC and no rain. February wasn’t quite as hot, but it still didn’t rain.

Do you wonder what you can do about it? Do you know how you can adapt to this hotter, drier reality? The good news is that a cooler, greener Adelaide starts at home and in our suburban streets.

The trick is to consider how we use water when we plan, design and renovate our homes. It can make a real difference. So, come and see how councils, architects, developers and water service providers are transforming our homes, streets and neighbourhoods with new technologies and innovative design that makes the most of our water.
