How Yarra Valley Water entrusted the big decisions to a Citizen's Jury

Friday, 5 August 2022 - 10:00am to 10:30am

Jennifer talks with Pat McCafferty, Managing Director of Yarra Valley Water, and Kim Nguyen, a participant on YVW's Citizen's Jury. The guests tell how YVW entrusted big decisions about the future of water management to a representative  sample of community members. Aboriginal elders spoke to the jury several times about their relationship with water, which had a profound effect on jury members. Following recommendations from the jury,'Care for Country' was adopted as a guiding principle for YVW.
