Host a Workshop

Host a Workshop

Thank you for helping create the program for the 2022 International Riversymposium by submitting an expression of interest to run a workshop during the afternoons in our local sites.

This year’s theme is ‘Journey to River Resilience: communities, climate and biodiversity ’. Having learned through presentation sharing in our morning sessions, the afternoons are an opportunity to deep dive through 1.5 or 3 hour workshops on topics of interest. This year, workshops can be hosted in Vienna and internationally outside of Vienna.

Suggested workshop topics are below but if you have an alternative, we are open to your suggestions.

To submit an expression of interest, email irs@riverfoundation.org.au specifying:

  • Your organisation’s name
  • Workshop location (will you be in Vienna or in your home country?)
  • Contact name & email address
  • Proposed workshop topic
