This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

The rivers and wetlands of the Murray-Darling are in a state of ecological collapse, while genuine solutions to provide them with enough water have been off the table for a decade. This year, we have a real chance to change that – and it’ll take all of us speaking up.

Join Virginia Trioli (Mornings on ABC Radio Melbourne), the Murray Darling Conservation Alliance and a host of experts on the Murray Darling for panel discussion events in Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne.

It’s a chance to seize this moment by answering some basic questions – why is the Murray-Darling so important, what’s wrong with the river and how do we fix it?

DOORS OPEN AT 6pm. The panel will begin at 6:30pm.

This event is in-person and LIVESTREAMED. Livestream link:
