Global Water Institute joins Open Cities Alliance
Last month UNSW’s Global Water Institute (GWI) became a member of the Open Cities Alliance, Australia’s peak association for Next-Gen utility and mobility infrastructure and services.
The partnership with Open Cities builds on the work of members of UNSW Water Community from Engineering, Built Environment and Law who are looking at precinct scale solutions to improve the delivery of water, energy, waste, information and transport services.
Open Cities coordinates activities between local government, private industry and research organisation to develop community and consumer based solutions that reduce overall costs, provide local control to achieve a low carbon, sustainable future.
Last month GWI worked with Open Cities on the co-design workshop for the City of Sydney Water Recycling precinct and over the coming months we will contribute to the Open Cities task force on the Circular Economy and Precinct & Multi-Utilities.
