Tweed Forum has been shortlisted for a major international River prize. Awarded for outstanding achievements in river restoration and protection management, the Thiess International River Prize is presented each year by the International River Foundation, with the winner awarded $200,000 Australian dollars in prize money.
The Tweed is up against three other strong contenders – the San Antonio River in Texas, USA, the Nushagak and Kvichak Rivers in Alaska, USA and the Pasig River in the Philippines. Previous winners of the prestigious competition include the River Niagara, the Rhine and the Danube.
The 2017 winner will be announced at the International Riversymposium in Brisbane, Australia in September (18th-20th), and representatives of each of the four finalists will travel to the event to share their knowledge and experience with others in the field from across the globe.
