About the event \r\n

The Sydney Water Innovation Festival (SWIF) brings together diverse perspectives in a creative and safe environment to connect and co-create ideas to solve some of the greatest challenges facing the water industry and broader society.


Our motivation for SWIF is to encourage a culture of innovation and create a better life with world class water services. We want to empower our people and partners to move beyond their ‘day jobs’ and take the opportunity to create fresh ideas and projects that will deliver value to our customers and community.

What to expect in 2022\r\n

Through a hybrid ‘hub & spoke’ style event, keynote addresses and panel discussions will demonstrate thought leadership, while Tech Tanks and Design Sprints will fast-track the development of new and innovative ways to solve some of our greatest challenges. 


We will showcase emerging innovations and technologies and some of our innovation success stories in the water industry. The Great Debate with the UK will also be back, along with entertainment, networking and engagement opportunities.  We will also host a special cultural immersion activity to celebrate our First Nations.


Spread across five action-packed days between 25 – 29 November 2022, there will be a key focus on reconnecting people with urban waterways with the opening of swim sites as part of our Summer of Swimming in conjunction with the Urban Plunge initiative.
