Local and international speakers will lead a series of workshops on building flood resilience at a free event at Monash University’s Caulfield campus on Thursday 23 June.

This one day event will showcase a variety of tools that have been developed as a part of the CRCWSC’s integrated project  ‘Towards a water sensitive Elwood’,  part of   Mapping Water Sensitive City scenarios  (Project A4.2).

Elwood has provided a case study in which climate change, resilience and sustainability can be addressed through an integrated, catchment based approach to water management. The tools tested in this project have included new community engagement approaches, integrated modelling tools and adaptive planning approaches designed to build resilience.

The event is centred around an architectural  design exhibition of climate change scenarios in Elwood, titled  Swamped , and will include a series of workshops and seminars.  The event is structured to ensure participants gain practical skills to apply in other projects.

The event will be held at Monash Art Design & Architecture, Monash University, 900 Dandenong Road, Caulfield. This is a full day event but participants can attend individual streams (morning or afternoon) if preferred.

If you have any questions, please contact Ebony Henderson  or call 03 9902 4985.
