Online event

Join us for Confluence 2020, which will be delivered through two webinars and a series of video project updates this year.

About this event

We invite all partners, academics, stakeholders and those with an interest in catchment management to join us for Confluence 2020.

The two themed webinars will each cover several iCASP and iCASP-partner projects, including the links between them and impacts achieved to date, as well as providing an opportunity for a Q&A session and discussion of future project ideas, priorities and ways to maximise impact.

The video updates will outline progress on projects not covered in the webinars and will be made available on the iCASP website for anyone to view from 26 June onwards. The webinars will be recorded and made available online afterwards. A summary of the Q&As submitted and discussed during the webinars will also be made available.

14.30 – 16.00 – Themed session on ‘Increasing the climate resilience of Yorkshire’s cities, towns and villages’

We are keen that these are interactive sessions allowing a range of voices and views to be heard. We invite you to submit questions in advance that you would like to see addressed – you will also have the opportunity during the webinars to ask questions and also to answer those that others have raised.

We would be particularly interested to hear your views on potential projects relating to Covid-19 and how existing research can be translated to address problems arising within catchments – for example, how might infrastructure planning be impacted by a future need for social distancing?
