Wetland Education and Training Workshop - Managing constructed wetlands and water plants

Wetland Education and Training Workshop

‘Managing constructed wetlands and water plants’

Thursday and Friday, 20 – 21 November 2014


All wetlands are under enormous pressure due to anthropogenic activities. Urban constructed wetlands are particularly at risk and can also suffer greatly from unplanned design and inappropriate construction. Poor maintenance and inadequate repair works also add to their degradation. Unless properly planned actions are taken, wetland assets can quickly turn into a huge liability. This two-day workshop will focus on these issues, highlight lessons learned from successful construction and management, as well as discuss effective, practical management tools.

Weathering the storm in the quality sphere

  • Identify, prioritise and communicate with your Stakeholders
  • Identify material Aspects (topics) and their Boundaries (internal and/or external to your organisation)
  • Communicate your report in innovative ways
  • Prepare you for future reporting cycles through continuous improvement of your processes.

2014 Writing Clear Science Workshops

2014 Writing Clear Science Workshops

We teach how to write clearly and succinctly, without sacrificing scientific accuracy. We teach you how to get your thoughts down clearly and how increase your efficiency as a writer. We teach how to write and design documents according to audience (e.g. industry, peer review), purpose (e.g. monitoring report, journal article) and the type of research or project problem that needs to be solved.

The Standard 2 Day Workshop

The writing workshops are usually presented as The Standard 2 Day Workshop. The modules cover all aspects of writing from discussing common problems, recommending efficient practices, improving writing style, reworking sentence structure and paragraph structure, and analysing section and whole report structure. We review the standard scientific reporting framework, how to prepare reports and papers, and discuss how to clearly and concisely communicate a research project to a chosen audience. In addition, across the two days, we conduct editing, writing and re-writing exercises, where we teach how to improve writing through effective editing skills and critical review techniques.

Demographic Transition: Addressing the economic and social impacts of an ageing population: Is there a silver lining?



The United Nations Association of Australia (Victorian Division) is holding a seminar entitled Demographic Transition: Addressing the economic and social impacts of an ageing population: Is there a silver lining? on Thursday 13th November, 2014, in Melbourne.

Held in partnership with National Australia Bank as part of our Sustainability Leadership Series, this seminar seeks to discuss the opportunities and challenges associated with an ageing society.

It will notably cover how the Australian government together with the corporate and civil society sectors are addressing the impacts of our ageing population on workforce participation and productivity, on our financial and welfare system, including on pensions, and on the provision of aged care and other social services. It will also consider the issue of age discrimination, particularly in the workplace, and how to change business attitudes towards older people.
