The Water Industry Alliance and the Australian Water Association SA Branch will be celebrating World Water Day on Friday 22nd March 2019 with an industry breakfast.
Each year UN Water sets a theme for World Water Day and this year’s theme is ‘Water for All – Whoever you are, wherever you are, water is your human right’. This World Water Day, 22nd March, is about tackling the water crisis by addressing the reasons why so many people are being left behind.
We will be joined by two guest presenters who will share the experiences of marginalised groups in Australia.
Ciara Sterling, Head of Community Inclusion at Yarra Valley Water and AWA’s 2018 Australian Water Professional of the Year.
With over 15 years’ experience in the water industry, Ciara is an industry leader in supporting customers experiencing vulnerability, hardship and family violence. She is the driving force behind Yarra Valley Water’s extremely successful WaterCare initiative and Head of the Thriving Communities Partnership, a cross-sectoral collaboration of organisations tackling the root causes of hardship and inequality.
Luke Trevorrow, Operations Manager, Ngarrindjeri Regional Authority
The Ngarrindjeri Regional Authority (NRA) is the peak regional organisation representing the communities and organisations of the Ngarrindjeri nation. We will be joined by Luke Trevorrow, Operations Manager of the Authority who will speak about the cultural value of water in the Coorong area of South Australia.
