Applications for speakers are now open, closing 9 March 2020.

Do you know something about the future of water that no-one else does? Do you have a scientific, social or cultural insight about waterways, water usage or the water cycle that you believe others need to hear? Do you have a way of sharing your knowledge that is unique?

The Peter Cullen Trust and Future Crunch are looking for the widest range of ideas and modes of presentation. Whether you use stats and images or song and dance, if you have a story about water that needs to be heard they want to see you on stage! And if you like to share the stage that's fine too: duos and group-acts are also welcome to apply.

WateREvolution will be selecting the most transformative presenters from a wide range of disciplines and training successful applicants to deliver their message with captivating presence and conviction on stage.

Free speaking coaching available to all those selected.

#WaterREvolution will be an event like no other for the water and environment sector; to create the water future that we want and to ensure the health of our global environment, we need to come together from all disciplines and all walks of life. We need to think and act and connect differently and we need to do it now .

The Peter Cullen Trust works with scientists, policy makers and political leaders to bridge science, people and the environment through funding and facilitating programs that contribute to improved rural and urban water management in Australia. To create this momentous gathering The Trust has partnered with the Future Crunch presentation team, who combine exploration of what is happening on the frontiers of science and technology with an intelligent, courageous optimism about the future.

#WaterREvolution will be a full day of creative communication that unites diverse and passionate hearts and minds to precipitate a new paradigm in human-water relations. Weaving together science and storytelling, analysis and performance, #waterREvolution aims to kickstart the evolving approaches and communal momentum needed to safeguard the very liquid of life.
