come together as a city through a river of flowers

let go through dropping flowers into the river

hold two minutes of silence to remember those who have died, been injured, or who have lost their homes

write notes of hope and post them on a tree of hope

acknowledge the importance of the river(s) in the life and heritage of the city

give a token of respect back to the river(s)

show the connections between communities – particularly those most affected

celebrate our strength – resilience and supporting one another”
