Online Training Portal

Water by Design have developed an online learning portal to support their Communities of Practice during and post Covid-19.

The portal will function as a training resource, communications hub, tools repository and a one stop shop for capacity building in sustainable urban water management across Queensland. Importantly the online learning portal allows us to continue delivering our training and capacity building program to local government and industry practitioners whilst also providing flexible learning options that enables collaboration and broadens the reach of our program, tools and research.

We thank our partners for their support, in particular the Department of Environment and Science, who together with the Water by Design team are excited to launch this new addition to Water by Design.

We currently have 4 courses on offer (CoDesign, Strategic Waterways, Living Waterways and SPP Review) with 2 more due by the end of the year (Water Wise Street Trees and Bioretention).

If you are interested in participating in any of our online courses please get in touch at
