A water sensitive city is:
…where communities care about and value water, while making best use of its various sources (groundwater, dams, stormwater, sea water and wastewater). The city serves as a catchment and provides healthy natural environments, supporting a range of cultural, social, ecological and economic benefits. A waterwise (water sensitive) community is sustainable over the long term, economically productive, highly liveable and resilient to extreme weather events. It is a vibrant community where our connection with water enhances our quality of life. By adopting waterwise (water sensitive) approaches, communities and the environment can become more climate resilient and make the Boorloo (Perth) and Bindjareb (Peel) region a sustainable and liveable place for future generations
(Kep Katitjin – Gabi Kaadadjan, Government of WA, 2022).
This breakfast event will encourage discussion about how (and why) Councillors can assist in the delivery of a water sensitive community. We will hear from three perspectives: a Councillor, Senior Executive and Officer who will share their journey and engage the room in some great discussion.
