Event description
Protecting the Thames: Bazalgette’s sewers, the Thames Tideway tunnel and beyond

About this event

How do you protect a living river like the Thames from all the sewage and rubbish generated by millions of Londoners?

Former DEFRA lawyer, Rosie Oliver, will reflect on her experience at DEFRA working on the new super sewer designed to deal with massive sewage overflows. From grassroots environmental activism to high-level legal and political pressure, she will shed light on what it takes to drive through an enormous environmental infrastructure project. And she will draw on the story behind the Victorian sewer system that London currently relies on. Rosie is an environmental lawyer turned audio producer and London guide. She worked for many years in the UK Government Legal Department where she specialised in implementing ambitious legislation to reduce water pollution and enhance the quality of our rivers, lakes and seas. These days, she applies her passion for the environment to the walks that she leads as founder of Dotmaker Tours which explores topics like waste management and noise control.

Join us for Vertue's Specialist Speaker event. Discover, learn and share knowledge and understanding and help bring a more sustainable environment for the planet, people and profit. Let’s start your sustainable journey here.

Organiser Vertue

Organiser of Looking after the Thames; pollution, waste and its environmental future

As a sustainability advocate for many years, I wanted to provide a platform for women to join based on their sustainability journey; to share, learn and bring change.  Vertue provides a platform for well-researched information from expert speakers drawn from many sectors, science, business, arts and NPO's. The rapid changes in how we live, what we eat, communicate and work have been so extraordinarily fast that all life forms and the planet are reeling. Vertue covers many environmental areas and issues eg renewable heat sources, ancient woodlands, increasing allergies and mental health problems, intensive farming, purification of air and water.
