London Rivers Week 2022 panel discussion: Natural recovery of rivers and wetlands – An opportunity to support wildlife
July 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
We are delighted to invite you to our London Rivers Week panel discussion on Wednesday 13 July.
About this event
The concept of rewilding with a focus on restoring natural processes, has sparked an exciting debate on how to support biodiversity in a changing environment. River restoration practitioners have been using rewilding principles over the last 15 years. This year’s discussion will look at what rewilding means in the context of restoration, the benefits and challenges, and opportunities for the future.
Come and join the discussion and Q&A with expert speakers who will discuss the importance of rewilding. Speakers include Ian Russell from the London Borough of Enfield and their exciting rewilding scheme, Lucy Shuker, Independent Environmental Advisor and Honorary Research Fellow at Queen Mary, University of London, on process led river restoration and Dave Webb, Chair of the London River Restoration Group, on river restoration and climate change adaptation.
Time: 18:30pm – 20:00pm BST
Location: 70 Cowcross St, 70 Cowcross Street, London EC1M 6EJ
