“An educated community is an engaged community”
Water360 education products help water utilities, municipal councils, universities and government organisations with their water education and customer engagement programs. An extensive range of digital education material – videos, animations, guides and interactive maps – can help explain your water story and better engage others in water planning and management.
Water360: Ready-to-go education and engagement material can be embedded and adapted for your organisation’s website, interpretive displays, e-learning courses, stakeholder workshops, community forums, and social media.
Water360 has been developed with support by the Australian government and the water industry in Australia and the United States. Education and engagement products are widely applicable to the international water community. Your organisation can obtain a licence to access the complete video collection or purchase products individually. In addition, you can work with Australian Water Innovations (WaterSecure) to develop new education and engagement material for specific purposes, campaigns, branding or language. The choice is yours.
Who manages Water360?
Australian WaterSecure Innovations (WaterSecure) is an Australian not-for-profit company which manages Water360. Following national engagement with peak Australian water industry associations, WaterSecure was established in 2016 by the International Water Centre and the Australian Water Recycling Centre of Excellence. WaterSecure’s office is based in Brisbane.
Water360 education products and engagement tools are grounded in quality social science and communication research, conducted by universities and research institutions internationally. Public perceptions, community values, and the use of words, images and language are critical in how we understand, communicate and manage water in our towns and cities.
