IWC/CRCWSC's collaborative 'Urban futures' module wins award
The award was presented to the joint winners for the design and delivery of the 'Urban Futures: Delivering Water Sensitive Cities' module, which the IWC developed in partnership with the CRCWSC as part of IWC’s Master of Integrated Water Management Program.
The module presents and explores a new paradigm for how the hydrological cycle interacts with the urban landscape to support liveable, sustainable, productive and resilient cities. It provides Masters students with an inter-disciplinary understanding of the inter-play between society, technology and urban design to ensure water security, water resource efficiency, waterway health, flood mitigation, public health and amenity. Participants will critically engage with the underlying principles of a water sensitive city and examine socio-technical pathways for facilitating its delivery. The module also incorporates leading-edge research and insights from the CRCWSC into the syllabus.
In total, five major awards were handed out at the presentation dinner held in conjunction with the 2015 Stormwater Queensland Conference in Toowoomba on 15 July 2015.
