River Restoration: Engaging with Rivers

De Vere East Midlands Conference Centre, Nottingham

24th & 25th April 2018

The RRC Annual Network Conference aims to capture a wide range of views of river restoration, and provides a unique opportunity to connect all sectors interested in, and involved with, restoring healthy, functioning rivers.

  Presentations are given from a range of sectors including practitioners, consultants, contractors, agencies, planners, river engineers, natural and social scientists, environmental economists, rivers and wildlife trusts, NGOs and local authorities. The presentations are interspersed with discussions and workshops and the conference gives delegates ample opportunity to network with representatives from all aspects of river restoration and management.
