About region-wide Labs

Labs guided the overall collaborative approach to the development of the refreshed Healthy Waterways Strategy and set broad goals and performance objectives for managing waterways in the entire Port Phillip and Westernport region.

They bring together government and community interests, with participants from various organisations and groups such as: universities, community groups, industry groups and local governments. The first Labs in the series included Waterways Co-design Labs and a Collaborative Implementation Lab, and there are upcoming Labs on Monitoring Evaluation and Reporting and region-wide Communication.

Check the Upcoming events panel on the HWS YourSay homepage for details on upcoming Labs.
