Join us in Canberra for the Water Week Summit!

Connie Warren from BirdLife Australia spoke at the Wodonga and Echuca meetings for the Healthy Rivers Roadshow. The Roadshow hit up towns across NSW, VIC and SA over the past few weeks to galvanise community support for a healthy river system. There was a great turnout at both Echuca and Wodonga and we heard from some inspiring speakers and had some constructive and passionate discussions about water management. A number of BirdLife supporters also attended the Roadshow in other towns across the basin.

We’re now gearing up for the Water Week Summit. It’s an exciting opportunity to get together with like minded people from across the Basin and to learn about how you can be an advocate in your community for healthy rivers. After two days of training, together we'll meet with Senators and present our joint petition (nearly 20,000 signatures and counting!) to Malcolm Turnbull and the state and federal Water Ministers.

You’ll hear from insightful community leaders on how local people can help the Murray-Darling Basin to thrive, and meet people who care from right across the Basin as they bring the voices of their communities to Canberra

I'll will be going and we’d love for other members from the BirdLife community to attend! Contact Connie at if you’d like to come along to this three day event.
