Event description

Description

Climate change means that we have to prepare our cities for heavy downpours, rising sea levels and flash flooding. It makes clever flooding solutions a requirement to safeguard cityscapes, but it also adds value because sustainable, landscape-based rainwater handling can bring nature back to our cities. It can create new meeting places and spaces for activities and thereby develop a city where water is seen as a resource that must be utilized, as opposed to a threat to be mitigated.

This event is part of The Liveable City programme, which is organised by the Danish Embassy and supported by The Royal Incorporation Of Architects In Scotland and part of The Festival of Architecture.

Chair:

Liz Parks, Deputy Director Climate Change, Environment Agency

Speakers:

Tim E Andersen, Project Director, Frederica C
