Inspiration from Water Futures – a Book that shines a spotlight on a Vision for a livable and water smart SEQ, a framework for considering options and resilience building measures for our varied landscapes and communities

/
The Book Water Futures explores the complexity of building resilience to the impacts of floods and droughts in the landscapes and communities of the Brisbane River catchments. As a framework to consider the options the authors have provide a rich visual array on how to appreciate what the options are. In this introduction to the elements of the Book, consider the various images as a way to build a Vision that can guide how a livable and water smart future can be achieved in South East Queensland.

Two years of topics, shared experiences and discussion leads to a SEQ WaterFutures workshop

/
Over that last 2 years our Flood Community of Practice collective has worked together on a range of topics. In August we will initiate an ambitious and creative design based workshop to further develop and utilise this collective experience and knowledge in developing options for future South East Queensland flood resilience and adaption initiatives.

Upcoming event

To build on the open minded thinking stimulated by the February Flood Hypothetical – an event in early August aims to develop a more substantiated set of principles and design options for the Brisbane River catchment.
