About the event
Our lands are host to some of the most beautiful waterways in the world to enjoy, recreate and socialise in. However Inland waterways are also the leading location for drowning incidents with over 940 lives lost in the last 10 years. We must work together and challenge ourselves to ensure all Australians can enjoy a waterway of life.
Provide a forum for Land Managers, Recreation and Tourism Operators, Government, Emergency Services, Water Management Agencies, Community Leaders, and academia to collaborate, discuss and investigate the issues and solutions surrounding:
- Participation – How do we increase the benefits of outdoor recreation, promote greater participation while maintaining safe aquatic activity.
- Risk Management – Complex problems require an adaptive and systematic approach within the support of a strong legal framework.
- Behavioural Change – Motivating individuals and communities to change their behaviour through context appropriate information.
Present research, policy and practice that aim to provide insights and address the issues.
Facilitate setting a collective agenda and action state for Inland Waterways in NSW.
Engage, collaborate, and strengthen partnerships with key stakeholders.
Please join us to at our 2-Day Inland Waterways Safety Swimposium on Thursday 27 & Friday 28 July 2023 at The Log Cabin Hotel, located on the picturesque Nepean River. Food and refreshments will be provided.
