Rivers have no definitive boundaries, either geographically, culturally, commercially and socially.  Rivers connect people, places, and other forms of life, sustaining diverse cultural values, inspiring leaders and transforming ways of life. We need to work collaboratively and celebrate diversity to ensure rivers are protected and/or restored for future generations. a virtual discussion and networking event over coffee or a glass of wine will enable participants to hear from a diverse panel. The discussion will cover working across generational, sectoral, geographical, social and cultural boundaries.
