In 2009, 15 water industry professionals embarked on a journey to discover what Water Sensitive Cities could look like.

Drawn for all over Australia, and a cross section of disciplines and organizational types they were recognized as emerging water industry leaders by their sponsoring organizations.

The study tour visited countries in Europe and Asia to inquire and learn about the challenges and opportunities faced by each to develop sustainable approaches to future development to address pressures of community expectations climate change, population, politics and finances.

While the study tour description implies a focus on issues related to water the cross over between community and broader sustainable practice was a common theme throughout the journey.

The Water Sensitive Cities website provides presentations and reports that provide ideas for others too start building local versions of a Water Sensitive City.
