Social Event: Pre-holiday drinks on 30 November

Join us on November 30 for some pre-holiday drinkies. 

We thought it would be a great idea to get together for a casual natter without any guest speakers or formalities. Just bring your drinking arm and wallet.

Location: Two Wolves Cantina, 202 Broadway, Chippendale. 

Climate Change adaption in the infrastructure sector

The Australian Climate Change Adaptation Research Network for Settlements and Infrastructure (ACCARNSI) is undertaking a project to identify the adaptive capacity of Australian infrastructure sectors to future climate changes. This project will provide an understanding of industry adaptive capacity and how climate change adaptation can be or is being included in strategic business planning for the infrastructure sectors.


As part of this project, they have asked EPF members participate in a survey. The link is here.  Answering the survey should only take 5 minutes of your time.
