SCANZ2015:water*peace brings together people from diverse backgrounds,connecting everyone in a positive expression of our relationship with water and the power of peace.

Water is essential to survival. Wai, water or flow is central to the worldviews of many indigenous cultures of Earth.

Today water monitoring in the environment has become important to sustainable approaches to water management.

Peace is also essential to the sustainability of humans on Earth.
