Water Week 2021
Each year, National Water Week (18 – 24 October 2021) makes a splash across Australia inspiring individuals, communities and organisations to work together to build community awareness and understanding of water-related issues.
2021 Theme: Caring for Water and Country
This year we'll celebrate and learn more about the vital and cultural role that water plays in our lives. The theme "Caring for Water and Country" recognises the importance water plays in our lives by deepening our understanding of Australian First Nations people's knowledge of protecting and sustaining our water and lands for over 65,000 years since the Dreamtime.
It is a time to learn more about our country's 'salt water' and 'sweet water' and how we can create a better future by caring more now. It is every Australian's role to understand more about how we can care for our water and our beautiful country and to work together in our changing climate. So, how will you care for water and Country?
You will find a wide range of learning resources available here on the Australian Water Association website.
