The 25th International Riversymposium

27-30 November 2022 | Vienna & Online

Journey to Resilience: Communities, Climate & Biodiversity

We invite you to join us on the 25th anniversary of the International Riversymposium.

On this anniversary, we once again bring together science, business, communities, NGOs and government to advance our efforts towards resilient rivers now and into the future. Our theme ‘Journey to Resilience: Communities, Climate and Biodiversity’ reminds us that we must work together to achieve this goal.

What’s on at this year’s Riversymposium

This year’s Riversymposium is special in so many ways:

  • It’s our 25th anniversary so we will be celebrating all those who have worked towards healthy and resilient rivers over that time
  • We are recognising the fundamental connections between rivers and communities and the twin crises of our time – Climate and Biodiversity
  • The main event will be held in Vienna with our partners IAWD so you can experience the picturesque Danube River, Christmas markets and stunning architecture of the city as well as its beautiful river surrounds
  • We will continue to bring our global community together by:
    • Running local events that feed into IRS 2022 in Vienna
    • Operating online so that other time zones can join us in Vienna
    • Hosting local events in other places in the hours that those in Vienna are asleep
