There is still time to register for the free CCRI seminar taking place on Thursday 25th May. Former CCRI Artist in Residence, Antony Lyons and Jenny Phelps from FWAG SouthWest, will be presenting “Water and Integrated Local Delivery (WILD) project, enabling local communities and famers to influence their local environment and its future management and development”.
The Countryside and Community Research Institute at the University of Gloucestershire was part of a successful team that won a 2016 Gloucestershire CPRE award for ‘innovative use of natural resources, including land and water’.
We are delighted to report that a film on natural flood management, which the CCRI helped to make, has won an award. From over 2,200 films, the public had nominated their best films in seven different categories. The winning film is called “Rural Sustainable Drainage – Natural Flood Management in the Stroud Valleys”
The CCRI is currently involved in an exciting new project called Sabrina Dreaming which connects environmental art with academic research and study environments. Thanks to an ‘Artist in Residence’ grant from the Leverhulme Trust, Antony Lyons will spend a year in the CCRI. Over that time, his topic of interest is the Severn Estuary coast.
