Event description
The theme of this year's virtual Confluence is ‘Working together to improve resilience across the Yorkshire and Humber region'.

About this event

Join us for the plenary event of Confluence 2021, which will be delivered virtually on Tuesday 8 June, 10am - 12.45pm.

We invite all partners, academics, stakeholders and those with an interest in catchment management and any of our projects to join us.

This will be an opportunity for us to showcase some of our key projects and the valuable impact they are having in the region.

As iCASP projects are designed by partnerships of academics and experts from organisations active in catchment management, we have invited some of our partners along to speak at our event about the benefits of our work.

The event will include on-site videos, guest speakers, updates from our project leads, a discussion about regional opportunities and the future direction of iCASP. Delegates will be invited to ask questions throughout the event.
