Join us to learn about rewilding rivers in London – through films, walks, clean-ups, talks and hunting down secret rivers.
Change is never easy and the pressure on Scotland’s land use is increasing at a rapid pace. Nature based solutions are coming to the fore, yet in many cases, this approach results in conflicting pressures. The Scottish Land Use Strategy (LUS) 2016-2021 has been seeking to establish an integrated approach to ecosystem services. Traditionally, agriculture and sporting estates and more recently forestry have dominated our upland habitats, but we now want to utilise our uplands to achieve an increasing range of objectives.
The Fresh Blood for FreshWater is a conference organized by early-career freshwater scientists, representing not just new incomers to the field, but also those who still (or forever) feel themselves ‘fresh blood’. In this regard, the conference aims to provide a friendly atmosphere to present our work and to break boundaries exchanging ideas with other young researchers.
This conference will discuss the priorities for flood and coastal erosion risk management, taking place following the publication of the Government’s long-term plan to tackle the risks of flooding and coastal erosion, and the Environment Agency’s National Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategy for England.
Come and meet worldwide professionals, and share experiences in the field of large rivers.
