River Restoration Centre Annual Conference
Members of the Unlocking the Severn team will be attending the River Restoration Centre’s 20th Annual Network Conference in Liverpool.
The River Restoration Centre champions ‘better rivers’ and promotes the natural capital and social benefits of restoring our river systems for a sustainable future. Their conference features a range of presentations and workshops from those involved in river restoration projects around the country.
Jason Leach, Unlocking the Severn, Programme Director, and Tim Thorpe, Volunteer Officer will be on the panel for a workshop on ‘Citizen Science for Impact.’ This will focus on the benefits and evidence of
the inclusion of citizen science activities to enhance river restoration practices and its wider societal and economical aspects – how they provide a knowledgebase for the design, implementation and evaluation phase of river restoration practices and improve sustainability of restoration efforts through increased participation and accessibility of larger audiences.
