RRC Courses and Workshops

The River Restoration Centre (RRC) has a long history of facilitating and hosting a range of different training courses and thematic workshops for restoration practitioners, river basin planners, policy makers and interested groups. These are aimed at increasing the skills of attendees and their value lies in the opportunity to learn not only from the experienced facilitators but also from interacting with others from different backgrounds in a learning-focused environment.
 
The training courses follow the format of a one day event with presentations and interactive sessions where participants will be expected to work through technical examples and, where feasible, a site visit to consolidate learning. The training courses are open to anyone who has an interest in the topics including: NGOs, trusts, statutory agency project managers, consultants, contractors, and early-stage researchers interested in linking science to practitioners’ needs. Training courses are developed to meet current needs and also take into account the backgrounds of the participants.
 
 
Upcoming Training Courses
 
River Management: Australian Perspectives Evening Seminar
Date: Monday 15th June, 16:30 - 19:00  
Location: Jacobs Winnersh office, Berkshire

Join the RRC and some friends from down under for an informal evening of stories an discussion about Australian river restoration.

Dr Siwan Lovett, Director of the Australian River Restoration Centre, is visiting and has offered to share her river restoration experiences gained over 20 years in the field. Jasmine Errey, River Restoration Advisor at the [UK] RRC, has jumped on board and is excited to join the discussion with her own experiences in Australian catchment management. As well as networking opportunities, the evening will provide some food for thought on different approaches to addressing river restoration and catchment management challenges – some familiar and some not so familiar.

Workshops

The RRC also supports and helps to facilitate external workshops run by other organisations. From promoting to presenting and organising we can help make workshops a success. This is where you will find out about workshops which we have helped to facilitate.
 
As well as stand-alone workshops we also hold a range of workshop sessions at our Annual Network Conference. You can find out more about these workshops when the information becomes available on our Conference Page.
 
If you would like us to help with your workshop then you can contact us.
