Last week, members of the Morphum Environmental team attended and presented at the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia (IPWEA) Sustainability in Public Works Conference, which was held in Melbourne. The conference aimed to bring a variety of public works professionals together to address the future of sustainability in public works, with a particular focus on aspects including sustainable and green infrastructure, technological developments, three waters management, asset management, and implications to community.
Two papers written by members of the Morphum Environmental team, including one written in conjunction with Tze-Sian Hor of the City of Stonnington, were presented at the conference:
