National Water Week

National Water Week

Learn about our Water Week activities in 2018.

Each year, National Water Week aims to inspire individuals, communities and organisations to work together to build awareness and understanding around water issues and opportunities for growth and innovation.

National Water Week provides an opportunity to remind ourselves and teach others that water must be used wisely if there is to be enough to meet the needs of our future generations.

While the week is dedicated to encouraging communities to take action to protect our vital water sources, it's also a celebration of innovation and water achievements that have and will contribute to Australia's sustainable future and economic prosperity.

In 2018, National Water Week will be held from Sunday 21st October to Saturday 27th October and the theme is 'Water for me, water for all'.
