We’ve seen some big shifts in how we can protect rivers in the last year - a new Environment Act, a damning report on water quality from government, and new ambition to turn the tide of pollution.
We’ve heard plenty of good words, but how will these translate into action?
Rivers are a key barometer for environmental health overall. As such, they must be at the heart of nature’s recovery, tackling waste and building climate resilience.
As we look forward with new legislation in place, proven nature-based solutions being implemented, and more people than ever taking environmental concerns seriously, this is a real watershed moment. Our conference will explore how words and legislation can turn to action and delivery on the ground. Investigating topics such as green markets, citizen science, and urban planning, as well as agricultural and sewage pollution, hear from cross-sector experts for a lively, vital discussion.
We are keen to present a diverse line-up featuring voices from the Rivers Trust movement, as well as the wider environment sector, industry, governance, and campaigners. Click below to register and read our Call for Contributions to find out more about submitting an idea.
