Join us on 10 August for the first of our events in the National WSUD Community of Practice webinar series, hear from practitioners across Australia who have transformed communities with a commitment to nature-based solutions for stormwater management through living streams. This is the first of our events in the National WSUD Community of Practice webinar series.
Communities in urban areas are seeking connection with nature, while governments are looking for initiatives that cool urban landscapes and make our cities more biodiverse. Living streams offer a sense of place and community, connectivity and recreational opportunities along a network of linear trails. The act of daylighting creeks – opening up buried watercourses and restoring them to more natural conditions – brings stormwater to the surface, retains water in the environment, provides opportunities to slow the flow and remove pollutants, and enhance habitat for local fauna.
