World Rivers Day Celebrations

World Rivers Day Celebrations

28.09.2012 - Posted by Leonie Duncan
A thunderstorm was brewing overhead, but that didn’t stop a group of Alluvium Melbourne staff from commemorating ‘Walk to Work Day’ with an amble along the Yarra River this morning from Federation Square, past the MCG and onto our office in Richmond. This weekend there will be another significant day too. Yes, there is the Grand Final of course, but then on Sunday it is World Rivers Day!

To commemorate the occasion, the International Rivers Foundation is calling on Australians to reconnect to their river by holding an event, a celebration, or even just a toast to their local river. They are also running the ‘River Matters’ photo competition in the lead up to Sunday. Check out their website to see the entries so far and what prizes are on offer.
