Natural flood management - WILD projectThere is still time to register for the free CCRI seminar taking place tomorrow, Thursday 25th May.

Former CCRI Artist in Residence, Antony Lyons, together with Jenny Phelps from FWAG SouthWest, are making a presentation entitled “Water and Integrated Local Delivery (WILD) project, enabling local communities and famers to influence their local environment and its future management and development”, based on the WILD (Water and Integrated Local Deliveryproject.

The WILD project has brought together a diverse partnership that over the past 3 years has been working collectively to bring about environmental improvements to the rivers and other watercourses of the Cotswold Water Park and the Upper Thames catchment. In particular the WILD Project has enabled local communities and landowners to develop a mutual understanding and as a result becoming more involved in the management of local water courses. Now in its second phase, WILD is looking to measure more deeply the changes that have taken place and to develop the key elements of the process that can be transferred to other places.

This presentation include a short film that Antony has developed for WILD, partly funded by the PEGASUS project.

The seminar will take place at the University of Gloucestershire Oxstalls campus in room TC118 at 12.15pm to 1.15pm.
