One of the 94 actions in Water for Good is to recognise the achievements of communities, individuals, schools, businesses, industry and government that are contributing to our future water security.
Many different groups in the water space have established awards programs to celebrate the achievements of those who go above and beyond in an effort to be innovative and smart when it comes to water use and conservation in South Australia.
To meet this Water for Good action and to encourage and acknowledge others who are contributing to South Australia’s increasing recognition, both nationally and internationally, as leaders in water resource management, the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources provides support to a number of these awards programs.
Recently sponsored awards programs include:
- Local Government Managers Australia SA Division’s Leadership Excellence Awards
- Stormwater Industry Association’s South Australian Excellence in Stormwater Awards
- Water Industry Alliance Awards
- KESAB Sustainable Cities and Communities Awards
- Australian Water Association’s SA Branch Premier’s Water Medal.
The Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources also supports key community and educational events. Recent events include:
- The Water Show - for years reception to year 7, this performance introduces the subject of water in a dynamic piece of theatre
- 2011 International Kids Teaching Kids Conference
- Local Government Association Showcase and General Meeting.
