SWIG Awards November 2013

Inspirational Awards for Inspirational Projects: SWIG Awards 2013

SWIG Awards 2013 - View from the Chair: Walking the Talk in public

From Peru to Paddington scores of Professionals flowed into Victoria to be part of the SWIG Awards 2013. There they saw, celebrated and discussed dozens of extraordinary projects combining, the practical with the imaginative to deliver projects promoting sustainable water use. The projects were imaginative and creative, making full use of water on and around the project and demonstrated whole systems thinking and integration with other people and systems.

A further innovation this year was the SWIG Lifetime Achievement Awards which recognises individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to SWIG.

Currently, the SWIG Awards are biennial with the next one planned for Wednesday 18th November 2015. Make a diary note!

Finally, your next project?  Eligible projects for nomination are probably in the design and planning stages right now if not being executed.  So some advance thinking might put you in touch with SWIG to register your interest or that of your clients.

We look forward to welcoming you to the next SWIG events and in particular to the SWIG Awards 2015.
